JAN ERIK VOLD READING WALLACE STEVENS WITH ARILD ANDERSEN & BILL FRISELL AT KONGSBERG, NORWAY 2010   It’s great to be in Kongsberg, with Mr. Bill Frisell (applause), Mr. Arild Andersen, my old friend from forty years back (applause), and now this impossible poet  — here upstairs (pointing at an enlarged portrait of the poet, at the fond of the stage) — Mr. Wallace Stevens. He writes so nice and so strange and so … intriguing poems that I’ve been … trying to translate them for forty years. Last year this selection came out, The Emperor of Ice-Cream / Keiseren av iskrem. So if some of you think otherwise, you’re in for a disappointment. Tonight, it will be Vold as a translator — and what’s been translated are poems by Wallace Stevens. A few pieces I might read also in English, in honour of our guest here. Arild made most of the musical arrangements, a couple of tunes are by Bill, and you might also recognize a few standards. Well Arild, I guess it’s time to get started.   1 A R I L D   A N D E R S E N :   E A R T H   L O O P This is the very first poem in Stevens’ Collected Poems. It’s called “Earthy Anecdote” / ”Jordnær anekdote”. You’ll observe that his poetry is located in different states of the nation. Here we are in Oklahoma.   JORDNÆR ANEKDOTE                           EARTHY ANECDOTE   Hver gang hjortene kom klampende                   Every time...

Mangelsdorff / Andersen / Favre «Triplicity»

Posted on jul 7, 2005 in Discography, Sideman | 0 comments

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 has been quoted as maintaining that «this ist the most thrilling trio recording» of his entire career. Truly a remarkable statement when one considers the timeless milestones his history has to offer. Produced by Michael Naura & Albert Mangelsdorff Recorded: April 19th, 1979 Albert Mangelsdorff Trombone Arild Andersen Bass Pierre Favre Drums 1.

Frankfurter Rundschau, June 05: «Albert’s best trio. The CD documents one of the glorious moments of free European jazz in the late 20th century, a moment whose brilliance has not waned and will continue to shine well into the 21st century.» All About Jazz, July 05: «The combination of these three musicians is a fascinating one. A superb album.» Stereo, July 05: «CD of the Month – No audible accompanists or soloists on this album. No one upstages the others, and yet each of the three remains a key playmaker.» Fono Forum, July 05: «CD of the Month – Moments to remember Music Manual, August 05: «Triplicity is a rare example of jazz improvised ideally. 5 Stars. Very Good.» Stereoplay, July 05: «10 pieces of awesome intensity and timeless freshness. A milestone of European jazz.» Jazzthing, August 05: » In terms of the music, the most interesting live trio session of his career.» Jazzeitung, July 05: «Inspired recordings arose in the making.
