Interview With German Magazine Jazz Podium May 2014 Der norwegische Bassist Arild Andersen isr ein Meister des vollendeten Tons. Mit größter technischer Perfektion und akkurater lntonation fließen die Töne mit sonorer Kraft und makello- ser Eleganz scheinbar mühelos aus dem Griffbrett seines Kontrabasses. Dabei wirkt sein Spiel niemals angestrengt, sondern eher spielerisch leicht, selbst in musikalischen Situationen und Umgebungen, wo Musiker mit weniger Erfahrung eher mit zupacken  der Kraft in die Saiten greifen würden. Der sympathische Bassist ist eine der gestaltenden Säulen der...

Andersen’s bass enters and hammers nails into the music. Drummer Paolo Vinaccia randomly erupts, scattering curses. Then the three settle into time and fly, Smith’s blistering runs converging to long hoarse cries. The sound, like the music, is raw. Aren’t ECM recordings supposed to be moody and ethereal, with...

JazzTimes on «Electra» by Christopher Porter

Posted on mar 25, 2006 in Interviews | 0 comments

MARCH 2006 Arild Andersen: Electric Electra By Christopher Porter When director Yannis Margaritis decided to stage Sophocles’ murder-and-revenge tragedy Electra, he wanted a 21st-century soundtrack for a play that was first staged around 420 B.C. So Margaritis turned to Norwegian bassist Arild Andersen, whose 1990 CD, Sagn (ECM), was a favorite. Sitting in an Oslo bar waiting to hit the stage with guitarist Frode Alnas during the 2005 Oslo Jazz Festival, Andersen laughingly admits that he didn’t reread the whole play before writing the score. «I was at certain rehearsals...
