At the Trinity concert Wednesday, I also bought the CD "Elise" (Compunctio 2008) by Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (bass) and Håkon Kornstad (sax). They play music inspired by religious folk songs from Oppdal, Norway. The opening tune is sung by Flaten's grandmother (Elise Flaten), but the rest of the album is the duo at work.
I admit I am not too fond of the mixing of folk and jazz, but here everything is forgotten. The record is just great, not much more to say about that. Keith Jarret's "Death and the flower" fits in well too.
