Nordic Quartet


Andres Thor's new album "Nordic Quartet" continues where "Mónókróm" left off but this time with a nordic collaboration and a different instrumentation.  Andres Thor has put together a band of musicians from Iceland, Norway, Denmark and Sweden resulting in a quartet of four highly accomplished musicians that,  although coming from different places and backgrounds,  are united through this music and have a unique musical kinship and chemistry.  The music is rooted in tradition but branches out with a broad spectrum of influences that flourish in the bands performance.

Andrés Thor Mónókróm Quartet

With elements of jazz, pop, bluegrass and folk music, guitarist Andres Thor's album Mónókróm has been described by eMusic's curator as a "Nordic version of Bill Frisell's Americana jazz sound."  The album has received great reviews and drawn attention internationally for its broad spectrum of soundscapes and moods. 

Mónókróm features Thor's quartet performing 10 originals that blend guitar, piano, dobro, wurlitzer, lap steel, pedal steel, pump organ, celeste, mellotron, double bass, drums and percussion. The result is a varied and luxurious soundscape, or as Tokyo Jazz Notes say "... an album rich with various different shades and tones that warrants repeated listens. Magical. "
