Paal Nilssen-Love Large Unit – Two Day Residency

No Longer Available
No Longer Available

Two-day residency with the new expanded ensemble from Paal Nilssen-Love – without doubt Norway's most prolific drummer and one of the highest profile percussionists in Europe, regardless of whether he is performing with The Thing, Scorch, Peter Brötzmann or one of his many own ensembles. Large Unit was set up last summer with a number of colleagues from the younger generation of Norwegian musicians - spanning full-on big band freak outs to texturally-enveloping electronic diversions. All the pieces are composed by the Nilssen-Love himself but are open enough to give his co-musicians the freedom they need.

Paal Nilssen-Love

Nilssen-Love has, during the last couple of years, established himself on the international scene as a powerful drummer with high energy and creativity. In 2002 he was "Artist in Residence" at Molde International Jazz Festival, a title Chick Corea and Pat Metheny held in previous years. After 7 days and 9 concerts at the festival, Down Beat stated, "His week at Molde proved a revelation: Nilssen-Love is one of the most innovative, dynamic and versatile drummers in jazz."
