Townhouse Orchestra played the small Forum venue in Molde today. What a band: Evan Parker (saxes), Sten Sandell (p), Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (b) and Paal Nilssen-Love (dr). I will never quite understand how musicans are able to improvise like this, and serve lots of energy and great solos for 75 minutes, but what do I care. (I wil not understand why a small venue like this is not packed for these guys either!).
As far as I remember, this was the first time ever I heard Evan Parker live, but I certainly hope it was not the last. Wow, what a great performance!
