Record Review: Jono El Grande

Jono El Grande
Neo Dada
[2009, Rune Grammofon]

Full Review Here. Jono El Grande is not of Latin or Hispanic origin. Actually, Norwegian Jon Andreas Håtun would have difficulty picking a more absurd name under which to release his music. Given the nature of his songs, though, he couldn’t have picked a more appropriate moniker. Whether in a studio or live-slapstic-show setting, Håtun subverts convention through musical and physical humor. However, the levity that allows El Grande to connect so easily with some may alienate others.
