Selected Recordings (2004)

Posted on jul 5, 2004 in Discography, Leader | 1 comment

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...

Archirana (2000)

Posted on jun 29, 2000 in Discography, Leader | 0 comments

Achirana» marks the debut of a new trio, formed by ECM bassist of the first hour Arild Andersen and featuring, alongside veteran drummer John Marshall, Greek pianist Vassilis Tsabropoulos in his first recording for ECM. Likely to be hailed as a veritable ?discovery? in jazz circles, Tsabropoulos has long been recognised as an exceptionally gifted performer in other idioms. To quote Vladimir Ashkenazy, «Vassilis Tsabropoulos possesses rare talent». He has a reputation as a classical pianist, an interpreter of 19th and 20th century music, and as a conductor, and there is...

Hyperborean (1997)

Posted on jun 29, 1997 in Discography, Leader | 0 comments

In Greek mythology, the Hyperboreans were a race who inhabited the northern portion of the earth, beyond the great mountains whose caverns were thought to send forth the blasts of the north wind that chilled the people of Hellas. The Hyperboreans were especially favoured by the god of light, Apollo, whose mother Leto had been born amongst them. For three months of each year, it was said, Apollo would leave Delphi and join these northerners, travelling through the sky in a chariot drawn by swans. From the legend, Arild Andersen notes, it is clear enough that the ancient Greeks had an inkling...
