Norwegian drummer Øyvind Skarbø has his own Jazz Forum. Saturday evening at Landmark in Bergen we got the post rock/indie band Blokk 5, and poetry to music by Swedish guys Fredrik Nyberg and Lars Carlsson in Monomono! Poetry and jazz, or poetry and acoustic guitar may not be the most exciting stuff, but how about poetry and noise? Quite nice! And the guys were on their knees all through their set. Way to read!
The main artist was drummer Chris Corsano. He gave us a great solo set, using sticks, bows, electronics and "stuff" (a taste). Drum solo on a Saturday night, it can't get any better, can it?
And once again, I stumbled home late with a new tattoo. Oh no!
