JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2011 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Arild Anderson Trio at Rochester Internation Jazz Festival

We read that the Norwegian bass player, Arild Anderson, had played with Terje Rypdal and Jan Garberack so that was enough for us. They started with a Gregorian chant taking full advantage of the beautiful reverb in the Lutheran Church. The drummer was a monster playing with whisk brooms at times. The bass player created little loops on the fly that became the foundation of some of their songs. This was beautiful music and the highlight of the night. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
