2 stars I have been curious about some recent developments on the Norwegian jazz-rock, fusion and prog scene. One of the newer albums I have given a good couple of listens to was the "Enfant Terrible".

Well, this title describes with uncanny insight and accuracy how I felt about the album: it comes across as infantile and borderline terrible .. jk :)

People who are into prog and contemporary jazz have been spoiled rotten by hundreds, of not thousands of supremely talented bands and musicians.

I can't determine if the Hedvig Mollestad Trio members just lack the necessary skills to play anything like proper prog or fusion, or they purposefully chose to express themselves artistically in this album by sounding like a teenager garage band. The "Enfant Terrible" is unpleasantly loud, coarse and monotonous.

I do not feel this album has contributed much to the (sub)genre.
