A shape-shifting, cheerily virtuosic strain of avant-garde jazz.
MOTIF consist of some of the most prolific players on the Norwegian and European scene, who in the last decade, have toured in Europe, North America and Asia. Their music has been described as a brilliant mixture of improvisation and composition, in which Ole Morten Vågen and the group mix classical, jazz and folk.
MOTIF have played festivals such as Vancouver Jazz Festival, Kongsberg Jazz Festival, Toronto Downtown Jazz Festival, Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Nisville Jazz, Beijing Ninegates Jazz Festival, Seixal Jazz Festival, Umeå Jazz Festival, and clubs like The Pit Inn in Tokyo, Unterfarht in Munich, and countless others.
Their two last records, the 3CD box set "Facienda", and the free falling improv project "Art Transplant", featuring german trumpet wizard Axel Dörner, have received great reviews in leading magazines and newspapers like Jazzwise, The New York Times, All About Jazz and others.
