Frakture present The Frode Gjerstad Trio

FREE IMPROVISED musical group, Frakture, are holding another of their popular gigs this time featuring the all Norewegian free-improvised music trio led by the acclaimed saxophonist Frode Gjerstad

This trio has a freshness which the big names in London and New York find it hard to muster these days.: Ben Watson, Hi-Fi News:

Glenn Astarita, All about Jazz:
This band often performs with a distinct sense of spiritualism to coincide with an abundance of hearty soloing and curiously interesting three-way dialogue.

The Frode Gjerstad Trio
Paal Nilssen-Love, Drums
Oyvind Storesund, bass
Frode Gjerstad, clarinets, alto sax

Frode Gjerstad is one of the few Norwegian musicians playing modern improvised music outside the ‘ECM-school’. He has chosen to play with foreign musicians because there is no tradition in Norway for free improvised music. With over 20 recordings as a leader he has established himself as a major saxophonist on the international scene. This is his first Norwegian trio, With Øyvind Storesund and Paal Nilssen-Love. They have travelled worldwide and received recognition for their high interaction, energy and their broad repertoire. Frode Gjerstad has for many years declared his enthusiasm towards small line-ups, and especially trio. The trio line up gives space for the musicians, but is at the same time very depending on the musician’s physics and musicality. Recently he has worked in the duo format with amongst others Peter Brötzmann. His trios have included Johnny Dyani, Kent Carter and John Stevens, William Parker and Rashied Bakr, and William Parker and Hamid Drake
