I.P.A. is something of a Scandinavian jazz supergroup, featuring Atle Nymo on tenor saxophone, Magnus Broo on trumpet, Mattias Stahl on vibraphone, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass and Hakon Mjaset Johansen on drums. Their music is vibrant modern jazz, which takes it’s cue from the classic mid-sixties Blue Note recordings while giving it a postmodern spin. from http://jazzandblues.blogspot Featuring Oslo-based Atle Nymo on tenor saxophone and bass clarinet, Norwegian-born, Austin, Texas-based bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, Trondheim drummer Håkon Mjåset Johansen, and Stockholm’s Magnus Broo on trumpet and Mattias Ståhl on vibraphone, I.P.A. is strongly influenced by the seminal 1960s work of Don Cherry and Ornette Coleman. Harmonically unfettered, rhythmically unpredictable, and melodically unvarnished, the quintet thrives on live-wire interaction, with rapidly intersecting lines that swoop and collide, disentangle and divide. from www.cuneiformrecords.com
