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...

Jazz review: Andersen, Smith, Vinaccia, Edinburgh   Opportunities to hear major international jazz artists outside of a festival context have become rather rare in Scotland, which made this week’s visits from this stellar European trio all the more welcome.   Andersen, Smith, Vinaccia – Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh * * * * Norwegian bass maestro Arild Andersen, our own Tommy Smith and Paolo Vinaccia, an Italian drummer long resident in Norway, have been playing together in this setting for years now, seeded by a collaboration between Andersen and Smith at the Islay Jazz Festival in 2005,...

      GREAT EVENING WITH A GREAT BAND Arild Andersen’s International Quintet debut was with his current crew at the Kongsberg Jazz Festival last summer, when the Polish pianist Marcin Wasilewski replaced Danish Carsten Dahl in about the time it takes to pack a bag and get from Warsaw to Kongsberg in the quickest manner. Now he is in the band, along with Andersen’s three partners for many years, the Scottish saxophonist Tommy Smith, the German trumpeter Markus Stockhausen and the French drummer Patrice Héral.Saturday night the band ended the Oslo Jazz Festival in front of a packed...

Ystad Jazz Festival august 2012 Arild Andersen’s 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 Smith’s powerful and exciting tenor saxophone has a minimalist expression, and can sound hysterical,...

  UNFORGETTABLE ARILD ANDERSEN Anyone who has experienced a wide grinning Arild Andersen bass bent over in interaction with the world’s leading jazz musicians never forget it. That describes Arild Andersen and that he experienced Friday in backyard on Canal Street. There was no doubt that this was a game, an exstremely well playing game, who commanded the jazz that came almost by itself. The audience got what they came for one of the best jazz musicians who gave of themselves. The interaction with the other two, Tommy Smith (1967) and Paolo Vinaccia (1954) were as expected in the top....

Celebration Jazz Times

Posted on jul 28, 2012 in Blogsidebar, Record Reviews | 0 comments

07/18/12 Arild Andersen Celebration ECM Records By Thomas Conrad Celebration is an atypical ECM album. It is a live big-band recording and a “greatest hits” project, and its somewhat distant sonic perspective on the orchestra lacks the intimacy of the “ECM sound.” But the more you listen the more sense it makes. Arild Andersen chose six songs associated with the ECM label, and commissioned six different arrangers to create new charts for the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra under the direction of Tommy Smith. Andersen, on bass, is the featured soloist. The concert was recorded in Stevenson...
