Jazz meditations

Meditatus is a meditation over the words and prayers from the traditional church mass which have been a part of our culture for over a thousand years – and a meditation on life, faith and hope in today’s world. Here, the pianist Jan Gunnar Hoff and Bodø Domkor, releases the mass that was first performed in Bodø Domkirke in December 2014. Behind them is Børge Petersen-Øverleir on guitar, Tore Brunborg on saxophone, Bjørn Kjellemyr on double bass and Audun Kleive on drums.

Jan Gunnar Hoff carefully approaches the old words, and he has laid a special emphasis on the mass´ introductory prayer, the words from the blind beggar the New Testament give account for – a call for help, a call from one who lacks overview, from someone who is in need but still has the power left to call. The combination between old words and beautiful sounds, which carry far, lures the listener in to a well known musical landscape where it is easy to enchanted. The successful meeting between the christian tradition and the newly composed jazz music is brought forth by singable melodies and elegant compositional solutions which gives the listeners an unforgettable experience.
