Listening to the latest albums by this hugely productive drummer has been a great pleasure, all of them varied, tense, exciting – he’s one of the greatest free jazz drummers of the younger generation (along with Chris Corsano). If any of them tweak your interest, you won’t go far wrong.
Future projects include an album with Frode Gjerstad, the curation of the All Ears Festival in January (a splendid non-profit festival for improvised music in Oslo which has existed since 2002; check out this year’s program), a duo album with Arto Lindsay and a large ensemble project with Norwegian and Finnish musicians.
So: plenty more interesting stuff to come.
