About This Project

Time is a Blind Guide is an acoustic collective, formed by a heavyweight from the Norwegian jazz and improvisation scene: drummer/composer Thomas Strønen. Strønen has released more than fifty albums in all kinds of constellations, but in recent years he has made way for his group Time is a Blind Guide. Their debut album at ECM in 2016 was seen as one of the most groundbreaking albums of recent years from Norway. The music is surprisingly impressionistic, lyrical, broad, cinematic, with influences from Norwegian and Eastern folk music. Their second album ‘Lucus’ was released earlier this year, also on the famous ECM label and includes the young and very talented violinist Håkon Åase and UK pianist Kit Downes. Crossover in perhaps the purest form, and a Dutch debut!
