We Are All Small Pixels
Pixel are one of the most exciting, innovative and accessible jazz bands on the international scene today!
Using all acoustic instruments and the line-up of the classic, piano-less, 'modern jazz' quartet (trumpet, sax,
double bass, drums) plus vocals from leader/bassist Ellen Andrea Wang, Pixel combine the sounds of modern jazz with the energy and attitude of rock musicians performing catchy, indie-pop songs!
The group has played major festivals and events all over Scandinavia, England and western Europe, and received huge press attention in Scandinavia.
This is definitely jazz, but it's jazz that rock and pop audiences can relate to, and it has huge cross-over
... one of the most memorable moments of the [Match and Fuse Festival]. --DownBeat
Jazz doesn't usually equate to instant enjoyment or accessibility, but this Norwegian quartet...is great fun.
Bassist/bandleader Ellen Andrea Wang anchors this collection of tidy instrumentals and catchy vocal numbers with strong, inventive bass lines. I imagine Pixel make a lot of new friends every time they play in front of an unsuspecting jazz fest crowd. --Difficult Music blog
