On April 19th, 1979 three seasoned musicians got together for the first and only time at the NDR broadcasting hall in Hamburg, Germany in what was to become a memorable encounter. Along with Albert Mangelsdorff the Norwegian contrabass player Arild Andersen and Swiss drummer Pierre Favre played a concert, that distinguished itself through an unparralled level of spontaneity. That control over the music never got lost in the process, that moreover perfectly shaped pieces arised from petite motifs in free improvisation turned this concert into a highly extraordinary event. Albert Mangelsdorff...

Selected Recordings (2004)

Arild Andersen’s compilation takes a zigzag path through his discography highlighting his own groups, his soloistic brilliance as a bassist and his perceptiveness in recognizing talent in bud. Quite a few musicians received early exposure through Andersen’s efforts. Amongst them: Bill Frisell, Nils Petter Molvær, Jon Balke, Bendik Hofseth, Bugge Wesseltoft and, more recently, Vassilis Tsabropoulos. Andersen’s :rarum also includes encounters with established masters Paul Motian, Kenny Wheeler, and Ralph Towner. «It’s been some fantastic years with ECM, and I feel...

Stockhausen / Andersen / Rypdal / Héral «Karta»

Posted on jul 5, 2000 in Co-Leader, Discography | 0 comments

Markus Stockhausen, Arild Andersen, Terje Rypdal and Patrice Héral. «Karta» is a Sanskrit word meaning «higher power». For Markus Stockhausen, in the present context, it signals a music greater than the sum of its parts: «The outcome of this recording took us all by surprise,» he says. The participants had never previously played as a quartet, yet some of them share a lot of history. In the case of Arild Andersen and Terje Rypdal, that history goes back more than 30 years. Other inter-relationships are of more recent vintage… In 1996, German...
