Listened to and liked

Arild Andersen, Paolo Vinaccia, Tommy Smith: "Live at Belleville" (ECM 2008). Bass, drums and saxophone, that's good enough.

Lars Andreas Haug Quintet: "Fabatune" (Curling Legs, 2008).
Swinging baroque jazz with a twist. Tuba rules.

Susanna Karolina Wallumrød: "Flower of evil" (Rune, 2008).
Cover songs by Lou Reed, Thin Lizzy, Roy Harper, Nico, Sandy Denny and more. Even metal and a dark Nico is turned into something beautiful. I don't mind. Guest: Bonnie "Prince" Billy.

Ole-Henrik Moe: "Ciaccona.3 persephone perceptions" (Rune, 2008). To say that i "like" this one, might be pushing it quite a bit, but it is some impressive extreme sport for solo violin.
Violin: Kari Rønnekleiv.
