HEDVIG MOLLESTAD TRIO ‘Ding Ding You’re Dead’

Mar 21, 2021 | Jazz, Reviews

Riff-a-thons & jazz fusion

Composer, improviser and guitarist, Hedvig Mollestad Thomassen, has a foot in both the rock and jazz camps. Known for her ability to fuse Iommi and Ulmer her albums are a potent cocktail. However, Ding Ding You’re Dead marks the trio’s 10th anniversary with a difference. Charging into a Page inspired riff-a-thon from the off, it appears to be business as usual, but the album takes a different flight of fancy. Heading firmly into jazz fusion, with lengthy periods of ambiance, this is more Sharrock or McLaughlin. All the players have room to breathe and explore these advanced compositions with Ellen Brekken, the bassist, taking on some writing duties of her own.
