Originally commissioned by Late Junction’s Fiona Talkington for the Conexions Festival in Oslo in 2013, Time is a Blind Guide is the name of the Norwegian-British ensemble led by drummer and composer Thomas Strønen.

The band was built to include a number of overlapping musical sub-groups: piano trio, string group and percussion, playing music described by Strønen as ‘melodic music with a twist.’ Their eponymous first album on ECM records has received wide critical acclaim.

A beguiling album with many hidden depths to explore over the coming months and years…the delicacy and quiet formality of a Japanese sand garden – The Jazz Breakfast
