This Scandinavian collective was established in 2000 and after nearly 12 years of working together, Atomic still remains one of my most important groups. We manage to challenge and inspire each other to search out new musical territories. This group is constantly endeavoring to define what jazz means to US, and how WE think it should sound today. Atomic is a family affair and I believe our music grows stronger with each new recording!!

May 18 – Atomic/Cinema Teatro Torresino, Padova (Italy)
