Krokofant biography
KROKOFANT is a Norwegian jazz-rock trio, consisting of Tom HASSLAN (guitars), Axel SKALSTAD (drums) and Jørgen MATHISEN (saxophone). Their name is taken from a mythical creature out of a popular Norwegian children's song, a cross between an elephant and a crocodile, "a lumbering trumpeting beast with a fearsome array of teeth in its snapping jaws...", a very good description of their sound. The band began as a duo, after HASSLAN and SKALSTAD, both former winners of Kongsberg Jazzfestival recruitment scholarship, met in a record shop in their hometown of Kongsberg, and started playing free music toghether. In 2012 they hooked up with reputed saxophonist Jørgen MATHISEN (SHAGMA, THE CORE, ZANUSSI FIVE and HUMVEE, amongst others), and they played an impressive debut performance at the Kongsberg Jazzfestival of that year. In 2014 they released their eponymous debut album on the Norwegian jazz-rock label Rune Grammofon, to rave reviews. KROKOFANT plays an energetic and explosive kind of improvisational fusion of jazz and rock, that is both free and structured, and also heavy, sounding almost as mathy metal at times. Recommended to fans of MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA, Terje RYPDAL, KING CRIMSON, HENRY COW, SHINING and MESHUGGAH.
