This is a very special opportunity to hear internationally renowned musician, composer and innovator Roscoe Mitchell and his quartet featuring Jaribu Shahid (bass), Junius Paul (bass) and Vincent Davis (drums), his trio with Nils Bultmann (viola) and Jaribu Shahid (bass), and solo. His virtuosic resurrection of overlooked woodwind instruments spanning extreme registers, visionary solo performances, and assertion of a hybrid compositional/improvisational paradigm have placed him at the forefront of contemporary music. The Anders Svanoe Trio will open, featuring Anders Svanoe (sax), John Christensen (bass) and Michael Brenneis (drums).
Roscoe Mitchell is an avant-garde jazz and contemporary music icon, currently serving as the Darius Milhaud Chair of Composition at Mills College (CA). He is a founding member of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), the Trio Space, and founder of the Creative Arts Collective (MI). He also leads several ensembles. His oeuvre boasts hundreds of albums and compositions and the development of the Percussion Cage, consisting of instruments of worldwide origin and found objects. Mitchells honors include a John Cage Award (FOC), multiple grants from National Endowment for the Arts, Meet the Composer and Mutable Music. Last year, Roscoe celebrated the AACM's 50th Anniversary with lectures, exhibitions, concerts and recordings at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, showcasing Mr. Mitchell and his peers. In 2016, Mitchell is redoubling his compositional efforts, beginning with the world premiere of Conversations for Orchestra, performed by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra with Ilan Volkov conducting.
Paal Nilssen-Love has been one of the worlds most prolific and active musicians that came out of Norway for the last 20 years. With thousands of gigs and hundreds of recordings the drummer is known for bands like The Thing, OffOnOff, Ballister, Hairy Bones, Chicago Tentet, and Original Silence, as well as collaborations with musicians like Arto Lindsay, Otomo Yoshihide, Akira Sakata, Ken Vandermark, Jim ORourke, Peter Brötzmann, Thurston Moore, Michiyo Yagi and many others.
In 2013 Nilssen-Love decided it was time to start his own big band ensemble. Consisting of mostly younger Norwegian musicians, Large Unit manifests as an intense powerhouse force on stage, but also veers into more subtle and textural passages. The group is also fortunate to include members from the other Nordic countries; Finland, Sweden and Denmark. In other words, Nordic music at its best!
Large Unit burst into life at the Molde Jazz festival July 2013 and has since then toured Norway and played festivals all over Europe. A small taste of what to expect came with the two-track EP First Blow, but during autumn 2014, Large Unit unleashed its full load with the massive debut album called Erta Ale which was released in four different formats totaling more than two hours worth of new music. Large Unit was expanded to 14 members (including two Brazilian percussionists) in August 2015 and recorded live and studio which resulted in the CD named ANA. The album combines Brazilian rhythms, free blowing and big band riffing in a highly successful way.
Large Unit music is all compositions written by Nilssen-Love, but the musicians are always given great freedom to contribute their own flavours to the music. The band is stripped down to single players, duos etc and at times split into several groups. The power of the whole groups is of course a treat in itself when in full blast. Traces of Nilssen-Love's experience from groups like Peter Brötzmann Chicago tentet, Ken Vandermark's Territory band and Frode Gjerstad's Circulasione Totale Orchestra are of course evident. There is no doubt that Nilssen-Love has taken inspiration from his years in these bands but still with the aim to create a new group with a sound of its own.
