Review Ystad Jazzfestival

Posted by on feb 21, 2014 in Blogsidebar, Concert reviews | 0 comments

Arild Andersen trio is arguably one of the best European team right now. ORKESTERJOURNALEN SVERIGE Ystad Jazz Festival august 2012 Arild Andersenʼs 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...

Reviews: Mira (2014)

ÅRETS SKIVE?    Record of the Year ? Tor Hammerø  Side 2 Det er nok i tidligste laget å utrope årets skive allerede nå, men jeg er ganske så sikker på at “Mira” blir med i tetfeltet når vi nærmer oss slutten av året. Read more All About Jazz .  John Kelman A long overdue and equally impressive follow-up—albeit for different reasons—Mira presents this trio in a different light to its 2008 debut; still, it’s no surprise that Andersen, Vinaccia and Smith prove as capable of darker intents as they do more energetic exchanges.

AA Quintet in Münster

We had a great evening at Theater Münster last Sunday (06/01/14) with the Quintet. Fantastic venue and audience. Münsersche Zeitung Erster unter Gleichen Mit dem Auftritt des norwegischen Bassisten Arild Andersen und seiner Band öffnet sich das Klangspektrum auf Superbreitwandformat. Andersen eröffnet das Set mit lang gezogenen, kräftigen Basslinien, die imaginäre weiträumige Fjord- und Tundra-Landschaften zu beschallen scheinen. Selbst als seine Mitspieler einsteigen, gibt Andersen kein Dezibel nach. Trompete (Tore Johansen, Norwegen),...

Church Concert Review   ( Norwegian only )

  Det var ikke bare en konsert. Det var et streif av stor høytid Det var høytidsstemning i domkirka i går – selv om det bare ble spilt en eneste julesang. Hvis det var julebord og løs snipp Bodø Rhythm Group arrangerte på Sinus sist onsdag, så bød de på andakt og klump i halsen da de inviterte inn i Bodø domkirke seint fredag kveld sammen med Bodø Domkor og Arild Andersen. Det er selvfølgelig lett å tenke på livet og de store mysterier når taket er skyhøyt og man sitter på en hard trebenk under krusifiks og store glassmalerier, men på...

The Trio in Stirling November 2013

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...

Trio In Edinburgh

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...
