Experimental, as artists nature has always been, Film Ing represents Bugge’s highest peak of electro-jazz fusion which he pioneered years before. Invisible line of synthesis between digital and acoustic is his specialty. Emotionally rich, intelligent, sometimes schizophrenic, with a touch of world music, but all trough a “lance” of recognizable Nordic perception of Jazz. Great album!
