Arild Andersen Group
George Russell, Dexter Gordon, Sonny Rollins, Don Cherry, Paul Bley, Chick Corea, Paul Motian, Bill Frisell, Nils Petter Molvær, Sheila Jordan, Jan Garbarek - perhaps the best way to introduce this bassist is to briefly recall who Arild Andersen has worked with since the 1960s, which diverse musicians appreciate his organic, open playing. What distinguishes the Norwegian, born in 1945: Curiosity about different musical natures at his side. In the current band, with which he released the CD "Affirmation" on ECM in 2022, he has gathered shooting stars of Nordic jazz: Marius Neset, with his lyrical tone that combines with the concentrated, gentle elegance of Andersen and recalls Jan Garbarek in its dreamlike permeability. Håkon Mjåset Johansen, who responds to the smallest nuances with effective subtlety. And Helge Lien, who brings everything together impressionistically, discreetly, but with harmonic refinement. Arild Andersen Group means: listening to four virtuosos improvising live.
