Interview Jazz Podium ,Germany May 2014

Posted on jun 21, 2014 in Interviews | 0 comments

Interview With German Magazine Jazz Podium May 2014 Der norwegische Bassist Arild Andersen isr ein Meister des vollendeten Tons. Mit größter technischer Perfektion und akkurater lntonation fließen die Töne mit sonorer Kraft und makello- ser Eleganz scheinbar mühelos aus dem Griffbrett seines Kontrabasses. Dabei wirkt sein Spiel niemals angestrengt, sondern eher spielerisch leicht, selbst in musikalischen Situationen und Umgebungen, wo Musiker mit weniger Erfahrung eher mit zupacken  der Kraft in die Saiten greifen würden. Der sympathische Bassist ist eine der gestaltenden Säulen der...

Review Ystad Jazzfestival

Arild Andersen trio is arguably one of the best European team right now. ORKESTERJOURNALEN SVERIGE Ystad Jazz Festival august 2012 Arild Andersenʼs group is arguably one of the best European teams right now. Finally, we listen to his singing, warm double bass along with a Scottish saxophonist Tommy Smith and Italian drummer Paolo Vinaccia.Ilama, ilama by Tommy Smith, free after a folk song from Yemen, starts and just give the concert wanting more when Arild played «Rossetti». Arild Andersen lets each note subside completely finished with his calm and charisma. Tommy Smithʼs powerful and...

“ the sheer depth and lustre of this trio’s sound can invite you to start purring in grateful imitation.» GUARDIAN 2014 John Fordham «with Mira, the possibilities possess an evolved simpatico, greater attention to space and more expansive, expressive vernacular.» ALL ABOUT JAZZ 2014 John Kelman «It is Andersenʼs skill as a composer of ballads that provides itʼs strongest cornerstone.» INSTRUMENTAL 2014 Michael S.Clark “Sounding much greater than the sum of its parts, the trio establish a degree of empathy that is quite astonishing.” JAZZ VIEWS Nick Lea...

AA Quintet in Münster

Posted on jan 7, 2014 in Blog, Blogsidebar, Concert reviews | 0 comments

We had a great evening at Theater Münster last Sunday (06/01/14) with the Quintet. Fantastic venue and audience. Münsersche Zeitung Erster unter Gleichen Mit dem Auftritt des norwegischen Bassisten Arild Andersen und seiner Band öffnet sich das Klangspektrum auf Superbreitwandformat. Andersen eröffnet das Set mit lang gezogenen, kräftigen Basslinien, die imaginäre weiträumige Fjord- und Tundra-Landschaften zu beschallen scheinen. Selbst als seine Mitspieler einsteigen, gibt Andersen kein Dezibel nach. Trompete (Tore Johansen, Norwegen), Saxofon (Tommy Smith, Schottland) und Piano (Marcin...

Church Concert Review ( Norwegian only )

Posted on jan 2, 2014 in Concert reviews | 0 comments

  Det var ikke bare en konsert. Det var et streif av stor høytid Det var høytidsstemning i domkirka i går – selv om det bare ble spilt en eneste julesang. Hvis det var julebord og løs snipp Bodø Rhythm Group arrangerte på Sinus sist onsdag, så bød de på andakt og klump i halsen da de inviterte inn i Bodø domkirke seint fredag kveld sammen med Bodø Domkor og Arild Andersen. Det er selvfølgelig lett å tenke på livet og de store mysterier når taket er skyhøyt og man sitter på en hard trebenk under krusifiks og store glassmalerier, men på fredag var det først og fremst menneskene som...

The Trio in Stirling November 2013

Where The Wild Things Are – The Arild Andersen Trio live at Stirling Tolbooth AA Trio Stirling Nov 2013 .Read More   Jazz can be an intimidating environment for the uninitiated. Strange unfamiliar shapes tend to leap out at you from unexpected places, pull your hair and then disappear from whence they came. Certainly, they are mysterious and powerful, but they mean you no harm. The Arild Andersen Trio featuring Paolo Vinaccia (drums) and Tommy Smith (saxophone and Japanese flute) seemed mild-mannered enough, but it soon transpired that they have a touch of the wildness about them too. The...
