The new year started with the  good news that the CD  Rheomusi  with Fabiano Araujo trio  was voted among the 10 best records of Brazil 2011.






I will be doing some concerts with my new Quintet this year, and I am writing some new material for the Quintet.

The trio with Paolo Vinaccia and Tommy Smith will be busy this year as well,

I am looking forward to a creative year  .

This year has been a great year for the trio with Tommy Smith and Paolo Vinaccia.

We have played concerts in USA, Argentina ,India , Egypt ,Turkey in addition to Europe.

I started a quintet with Marcin Wasilewski  piano, Patrice Heral drums, Tommy Smith saxophone and Markus Stockhausen altenating with Paolo Fresu on trumpet.  There are a couple of songs from Kongsberg in the musicplayer.
( Markus on trumpet)

I did two concerts with the project «Celebration» together with SNJO at London jazzfestival and at the Molde Jazz festival.
We also mixed the concert from Glasgow with this project which will be out next year on ECM.





Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Tour in India

Posted by on des 17, 2011 in Blog, Blogsidebar | 0 comments

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 Norwegian » Rikskonserterne» who do several tours, workshops etc in India.

The food was of cause fantastic and we all managed to stay healthy and no «Delhi belly».

This was the last tour this year for the trio

Norways no 1 Record of all times.

Posted by on nov 25, 2011 in Blog, News | 0 comments

This fall there has been a voting where 100 Norwegian musicians from all categories in music have  voted for their 10 favourite recordings of all times in Norway .  The record «Fairytales » with Radka Toneff and Steve Dobrogosz won.
I produced the record back in 1982 and it was the first digital recording in Norway recorded 2 track in the «Grieg Hall» in Bergen.

Second came the famous popgroup a-ha .

We played a Quintet concert at the Radio Concert hall  in Lugano
Arild Andersen Quintet
Tommy Smith Sax , Paolo Fresu Trumpet, Marcin Wasilewski  piano , Patrice Heral Drums
It is a great quintet and I will work it as a pool of musicians that I like to play with.
All these guys are so busy it will be impossible to have the same lineup all times.
In Lugano Paolo Fresu played trumpet. Kongsberg last summer it was Markus Stockhausen
This way the quintet will have some fresh inputs every time.
