Selected album reviews:
“The guitar jazz CD of the year, without a doubt. A great new guitarist has presented himself.” – Lennart Götesson / Dalademokraten | “You absolutely need to be blind not to recognize the virtuous talent of this young Norwegian jazz guitarist Steinar Aadnekvam. The twelve tracks on his debut album ‘Simple Things’ are Latin inspired and groovy jazz instrumentals that will provide you with an hour of in-depth relaxation and very enjoyable music.” – Rootstime Magazine Belgium | Steinar Aadnekvam (26) plays acoustic guitar with playful fingers on this debut disc, and has similarities with guitarists such as McLaughlin and Di Meola – with a large surplus on the technique and much inspiration is from Brazilian music and contemporary jazz. A presentation of a talented guitarist, proving that he is a musician to be reckoned with in the future. – Stephen Miedell / Bergens Tidende (Norway) | Compelling guitar lines from Steinar Aadnekvam – a player who handles acoustic here, but works in this warm mode that has lots of nice 70s touches too – an airy, atmospheric space that still finds plenty of room to groove, even in a gentle way – a bit like Pat Metheny on ECM , with all the light and color such a reference might imply – even though Steinar’s overall sound is quite different! As with some of Metheny’s best, there’s a bubbling undercurrent on some of the best tracks – almost a trace of Brazilian jazz – Dusty Groove America (USA)
