Two generations Eberson has collaborated on an exciting musical collaboration. Father and daughter – Jon and Marte – are now ready with the album “Empathy”. Through Empathy, the duo will express the importance of supporting each other in the face of adversity and difficult times. Through various songs with melancholy soundproofing, aggressive rhythm, the duo takes place in a textual and musical landscape, recognizing songs from both pop and jazz worlds. In this joint project, Jon has made the chord rows considerably, while Marte has made melodies and text. On the recording they include Kristoffer Lo on wind instruments, Mats Miele Jensen on percussion and Roar Nilsen on bass.
It is the first time father and daughter share a musical project on an equal basis. Marte has previously played in Jon’s “Jazzfunkensemble”.
Jon’s strong musical merit list as a composer and guitarist stretches back to the 70’s, from bands like “Moose Loose,” Blow Out, and the band to Radka Toneff, via the 80’s “Jon Eberson Group”, “Jazzpunkensemblet” and a series of groups in various jazz contexts. In recent years he has released several albums with Hilde Marie Kjersem and Sigurd Hole.
Marte was a key keyboard player in “Highasakite” for almost five years, and has been touring the world around the band, in addition to playing at the biggest festivals at home and abroad. She has also been well-known in diverse musical landscapes, through collaboration with several of Norway’s major musical names in both jazz and pop, including Martin Halla, Sjur Miljeteig and Hedvig Mollestad. Marte also released the solo album “Mad Boy” in 2016.
