De Håker Flaten and The Young Mothers Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (NO) – ac. and el. bass Jawwaad Taylor (US) – trumpet/electronics/vocals Jason Jackson (US) – alto and tenor saxophones/guitar Stian Westerhus (NO) – guitar/pedals Stefan Gonzalez (US) – drums/vibraphone Frank Rosaly (US) – drums/electronics Born out of the desire to continue, yet alter, the musical direction of his quintet, De Håker Flaten and The Young Mothers is the six-piece, transcontinental brainchild of Norwegian bass virtuoso Ingebrigt Håker Flaten. Upon moving to Austin in 2009, Håker Flaten sought out to establish new working relationships with improvisers from the vibrant and dynamic creative music undergrounds of Texas-his new home. With Texans, Jason Jackson, Jawwaad Taylor and Stefan Gonzalez handling horns, percussion,vocal and rhythm guitar duties; Ingebrigt called upon Chicagoan Frank Rosaly (a member of the Chicago incarnation of Flaten's quintet), to take his place in the lineup attending to electronics and drums. The addition of Stian Westerhus, the Norwegian guitar phenomenon, completes and solidifies this stellar collective. While Ingebrigt is no stranger to the role of bandleader (having previously released two records with the Ingebrigt Håker Flaten Quintet on the Norwegian label, Jazzland Recordings), De Håker Flaten and The Young Mothers now finds him conspiring energetically to meld and shape new sounds with formidable players from varied musical genres. A complex amalgam of references and aesthetics within the band makes for a clever, intricate, and raucous sonic foundation that propels the music forward into compelling new territories. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ingebrigt studied Jazz at the Music Consevatory in Trondheim, Norway (1992-1995) under the tutelage of bassplayer Odd Magne Gridseth. A professional musician since 1995, he continues to shape and refine his sound by embarking on extensive international tours with some of the most diverse and important improvisers on the circuit today. Most easily recognized for his contributions to the Pan-Scandinavian groups, The Thing and Atomic, Flaten has also left his indelible mark in collabortive projects with musicians from the undergrounds of New York, Chicago, Austin, Houston and Mexico City. Prolific and inventive, Ingebrigt has participated on more than 100 recordings. www.ingebrigtflaten.com www.thingjazz.com www.atomicjazz.com
