Jon Eberson Group anno 2017 låter ikke som den Jon Eberson Group man kjente til på 80-tallet - både låtene og lydbildet skiller seg radikalt fra det legendariske jazzrock-soundet som gjerne forbindes med gamle hits som for eksempel «Jive Talking».

I have started my own trio, Sigurd Hole trio, with Jarle Vespestad - drums and Håkon Aase - violin. It´s a great pleasure to write music for and to play with this small, open chamber music group!

This review of Eple Trios "Universal Cycle" just came in from swedish magazine LIRA. Excerpt in english: "Hole changes neatly between arco and pizzicato playing. At times so beautiful it is almost painful - as in the bass solo on Tipplers Insomnia (arco), where the notes changes into overtones in a way that nearly resembles a human voice cracking up. It´s fragile, vulnerable and brilliant."

So happy to be the winner of Forsberg and Aulies grant 2014! The grant is 100 000 kr, and will be used for focusing amongst other things on my own solo recording in 2015. An honour to accept this grant as the first jazz musician ever, following last years winner Vilde Frang and earlier winners such as Håvard Gimse and Wolfgang Plagge.

It just became official that I am the new bass player in Tord Gustavsen quartet! Very excited about that. Following great bass players Mats Eilertsen and Harald Johnsen it will not be an easy spot to fill, but I will do my best to keep the continuity in their ideas growing while approaching the music bringing whatever I can of my own identity into the band. A couple of weeks ago I made my first tour with the quartet, 7 flights in 3 days brought us to Bielsko Blava (Poland), Antalya (Turkey) and Sibiu (Romania).

Jon Eberson Group, med Hilde Marie Kjersem og Sigurd Hole, gav høsten 2010 ut det kritikerroste albumet ’Comfort Call’. Musikken er komponert av Eberson, til tekster av Kjersem. Dette er første gang Eberson har innledet et så omfattende samarbeid med en vokalist/tekstforfatter siden suksessen med Sidsel Endresen på 1980-tallet, og resultatet har høstet lovord fra både presse og publikum. På plata spiller også en smakfull strykesekstett under ledelse av Frode Larsen (konsertmester i Kringkastingsorkesteret). Arrangementene er skrevet av Hole.

”The Coarse Sand & The Names We Wrote” (2011) is todays version of Jon Eberson Groups second release. The groups second album is more influenced by pop and country music, making it what Norwegian press have called Jon Eberson Groups most commercial oriented release since ”Jive Talking” (1981). This was made even more evident in the bands release tour, nearly 20 concerts all over Norway with good audience numbers marked the end of a productive 2011.
