Tomorrow’s finally here is the second long play album from energetic jazz band Bangkok Lingo. This Quintet is filled to the brim with both high-octane rhythm and intense solos as well as laidback grooves and delightful melodies, and they have established themselves as a sought after act on the Norwegian live scene. The five young musicians hail from Oslo and are inspired by exotic music from other parts of the world. Their music mixes swing, free jazz and catchy melodies in a raw and unfiltered landscape. Tomorrow’s finally here is inspired by both legendary 60’s jazz, swing and world music, all performed with excellence and joy.


These guys aren't from Bangkok, they're from Norway, but you would never have expected that when you hear the music from their second long player "Tomorrow's Finally Here". Trumpet and saxophone as well as a rhythm section of bass, drums and percussion create a sound that is transparent despite its density, whose melodic variety seems to come directly from South Africa and is sometimes reminiscent of Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath or Abdullah Ibrahim's masterpiece "African Marketplace". The two horns play lively melodies, but they are also up to all the tricks of free jazz and Olav Imerslund's heavily syncopated bass ensures a constantly grooving drive.
