By JOHN KELMAN, Published: June 20, 2012   Arild Andersen Celebration ECM Records 2012 With all the activities surrounding the 40th anniversary of ECM Records in 2009—from a three-day festival-within-a-festival at that year’s Enjoy Jazz Festival in Mannheim, Germany, and the budget-priced Touchstone Series reissue of forty essential ECM titles, to the publication of an all-German book of commissioned writing, Die Blaue Klang (Wolke Verlag, 2010), and the follow-up to 1996’s much coveted and out-of-print Sleeves of Desire: A Cover Story (Lars Müller Publishers, 1996)—it is,...

Stort og flott Av: TOR HAMMERØ PUBLISERT 19.06.12 12:47 Arild Andersen Celebration ECM/Grappa/Musikkoperatørene I forbindelse med ECMs 40 års jubileum i 2009, fikk den skotske mestersaksofonisten Tommy Smith en idé om å arrangere noe av musikken som hadde blitt unnfanga under ECM-paraplyen for storband. Storbandet han hadde i tankene var Scottish National Jazz Orchestra som han hadde stifta i 1995. Solisten han ville ha med seg var superbassist Arild Andersen som har vært forbundet med ECM helt siden starten i 1969. Smith og Andersen har samarbeida lenge i Andersens trio med trommeslager...

Vossa Jazz, og mye rart skal skje om ikke noen titler fra det blodferske albumet «Space is the Place» står på settlista. Uansett har festivalpublikum i Vossasalen på Park Hotel atskillig å se fram til av både tettvevd og eventyrlystent samspill. DEN danske pianisten og tidenes internasjonalt mest meritterte norske bass/trommer-par var plateaktuelle med «Short Fairytales» i 2006, og Dahl og Andersen...

India The trio with Tommy Smith and Paolo Vinaccia with Mak McKellen as sound producer went to India for 14 days  end of November. We played school concerts in Chennai and Delhi and ended the tour with a concert on Dec 9 at the festival Jazz Utsav in Delhi. It left a very strong impression on us to see how poor people live in earth cottages and with the garbage all over the place and then the very rich palaces for some people… We had a fantastic time however and was very well taken care of by Spic Macay who is an volunteer foundation for Arts and Education. The tour was payed by the...
