”Rainbow Session” is the Norwegian saxophonist Harald Lassens first solo album in collab with Belgian musicians Lander Gyselinck(dr), Anneleen Boehme(bs) and Bram De Looze(pn), also known as LABtrio – currently one of the major talking points in European jazz.
”Rainbow Session” is a very personal album which is not only referering to where the music was recorded – but also Haralds life so far and various events in recent years.

The entire album was recorded on the second day on the road in May 2017, during a five hour session in legendary Rainbow Studios in Oslo. Just like Lassen’s musical background and career, Rainbow Session is a collection of varied music focusing on strong compositions inspired by impressionistic and classical music, major chords, the 70´s and life so far.

After many years of building up strong band concepts such as the indie jazz outfit Pixel, avant hip hop sextet Mopti & Bendik Baksaas and the innovative duo DUPLEX, Harald Lassen decided to track his jazz roots and write music for a conventional jazz line up: the piano quartet.
