Saturday jazz celebration at Dokkhuset

wp_20161022_21_45_52_proDays are getting shorter, so are my weekend trips. In the chase for some warmth and light, I am heading indoors rather than outdoors. Fortunately for me, Trondheim offers quite a lot of opportunities for both!

Last Saturday I went to Dokkhuset for the first time since I arrived in town and I loved it! I learned something about jazz scene and music history in the area, as well as the experienced cozy atmosphere in a club located by the canal. All the candles inside and city lights reflected in the water outside, together with friendly staff and great musical performances made me relieved – winter is coming but who cares! There are cozy places in town.

I went to see a double concert of Kirsti,Ola&Erik and then Bjørn Alterhaug Quintet. Although sick and accompanied by nose drops and pills, Kirsti sung wonderfully and together with Ole and Erik she played some covers of famous songs like “Teardrop” by Massive Attack or “The Day Before You Came” by Abba. After a short “cigarette break” the Quintet came and totally rocked it!
At that point, I felt I was taking part in a proper celebration of jazz. The celebration of drums, bass, piano, and saxophone. If you ever have a chance to see Bjørn Alterhaug Quintet playing live, don’t miss out on them!wp_20161022_20_17_04_pro
