Peter Janson - Live At The Glenn Miller Café (Ayler Records, 2006) ***½

Ayler Records is a great label, which has released some excellent discs of free jazz in the past years, of which many were recorded at the Glenn Miller Café in Stockholm. This one with Peter Janson on bass, Jonas Kullhammar on baritone sax and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums has recently been made available on It is a live performance of free trio blowing. The main quality of the album is the sheer musical energy released by the trio, with kudos to the excellent drumwork of Nilssen-Love. Their creativity and musicianship is excellent, although I sometimes missed some focus, wondering where all this soloing was going to.
