The Scandinavian music scene has for some decades now proven to be a fertile breeding ground for aspiring international artists. THE BIG YES! is no exception, and carries on the fruitful tradition of exciting collaborations between the Scandinavian countries. Swedish saxophonist Anna Högberg on saxophone teams up with Danish trombone player Maria Bertel, both of which are amply supported by the hard hitting Norwegian rhythm combo Christian Meaas Svendsen and Ole Mofjell on double bass and drums respectfully.
Their debut album is released on Nakama Records. This is free flowing dynamite music cast in a well known mold, but with its own flavor. The music is democratic like Scandinavia itself, but also dangerous like North Korea, and uncompromising like the old USSR. Still, The Big Yes! erases borders and unites everyone who is willing to listen in a single grand and unspoken YES!
