Atomic Schooldays: “Distil” (2008)
After one of Paal Nilssen-Love's performances in Molde, I picked up the double CD ”Distil” (Okkadisk 2008) by Atomic Schooldays . Atomic Schooldays is of course a band with the people from Atomic and Schooldays (!), and this is a great record! You get some free stuff, some straight jazz, and it swings! The band is Ken Vandermark (US) (sax, clar), Fredrik Ljungkvist (SE) (sax, clar), Magnus Broo (SE) – (tp), Jeb Bishop (US) – (trombone), Håvard Wiik (N) – (p), Kjell Nordeson (SE) – (vibraphone), Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (N) – (b) og Paal Nilssen-Love (N) – (dr, perc).
