Nezelhorns is an experimental jazz quintet, which plays original compositions by Petter Hängsel and Nana Pi. The music has harmonic freedom creating soundscapes that both have a diatonic and dissonance character, where traditional and abstract grooves meet tonal and atonal melodies. The band plays with great emphasis on sound and improvisation and they are known for their rough and forceful expression. Sentiment is the follow-up of their debut release Nezelhorns In An Elephant String, which was described as “Jazz with genuine darkness” by DN’s jazz reviewer Johannes Cornell and “a very worth hearing record that is recommended!” by Jan Strand, OJ 2014.
