Video: “Focus,” from Jazz & Fly Fishing

Written by: Phil Monahan

Our pals from the Nordic Countries* are back, with a dreamy little video featuring one man, one cast, and one fish. I love the simplicity of the fishing footage. Surrounding this scene is some camera experimentation. I love what these guys do.

*I have been referring to these guys as “Scandinavian,” but I recently learned that Finland—from where the Toivanen brothers, Joona (piano) and Tapani (bass) hail—is not part of Scandinavia. Apparently, I should be using “Nordic countries,” if I want to encompass Finland, guitarist Håvard Stubø’s native Norway, and drummer Fredrik Hamrå’s home in Sweden. Don’t say you didn’t learn something today.
