about

The widely acclaimed debut album from Norwegian acoustic guitarist Steinar Aadnekvam is the outcome of a long collaboration with quartet collegues and follows award nominations such as the 2009 "Young Nordic Guitarist" award at the Uppsala Guitar Festival and 2010 finals in the "Norsk JazzIntro" at the Molde Jazz Festival.

Selected album reviews:
"The guitar jazz CD of the year, without a doubt. A great new guitarist has presented himself." - Lennart Götesson / Dalademokraten | “You absolutely need to be blind not to recognize the virtuous talent of this young Norwegian jazz guitarist Steinar Aadnekvam. The twelve tracks on his debut album ‘Simple Things’ are Latin inspired and groovy jazz instrumentals that will provide you with an hour of in-depth relaxation and very enjoyable music.” - Rootstime Magazine Belgium | Steinar Aadnekvam (26) plays acoustic guitar with playful fingers on this debut disc, and has similarities with guitarists such as McLaughlin and Di Meola - with a large surplus on the technique and much inspiration is from Brazilian music and contemporary jazz. A presentation of a talented guitarist, proving that he is a musician to be reckoned with in the future. - Stephen Miedell / Bergens Tidende (Norway) | Compelling guitar lines from Steinar Aadnekvam – a player who handles acoustic here, but works in this warm mode that has lots of nice 70s touches too – an airy, atmospheric space that still finds plenty of room to groove, even in a gentle way – a bit like Pat Metheny on ECM , with all the light and color such a reference might imply – even though Steinar's overall sound is quite different! As with some of Metheny's best, there's a bubbling undercurrent on some of the best tracks – almost a trace of Brazilian jazz - Dusty Groove America (USA)

Track Name: Bossanova #1 (Feat. Lena Swanberg)
Foi meio dia, ouviu um passarinho cantando meu destino.
 Por causa d'ela que eu foi te encontrar, pra tomar
 um cafézinho. Falando sobre tudo, sobre nada, 
pelo menus um razao pra combinar. Pra comescar.



Vem lua cheio, ainda caminhando um ao lado do o outro.


Aparesce um sentimento familhar. 
Já chegamos na porta, poder ser um bejinho,
 coisa linda - o momento em que que os anjos descem pra cantar.



Mas ai que dor, a paxiao. Choro e rio sem razao.
 Mas assim foi feito pra mim. Mas logo passou o tempinho do amor.



Viu, meu coracao! Foi essas dias, mudaram nossas vidas, 
fez tudo differente. Agora canto meu cancao para vocé.
 O nosso amor foi uma guerra, mas mesmo assim te adoro coisa linda.
 Quero todas coisas boas pra vocé. Até a gente se ver.
Track Name: A Simple Thing (feat. Claes Janson)
Every time I close my eyes, I can picture this before me.
Oh how lucky I must be to dream, and drift away in simple things,
yet everything that means something. That means something.



And when I pull down the shades, (with)in my own (self) I'll rest forever.
This is what I'll leave to you - a song to sing. A memory. To keep within.
A simple thing. That’s all.
