Thanks to the friendly people of Bergen Jazzforum who gave us another free concert at the Landmark club Wednesday. This time Trinity with Kjetil Møster (sax, clar), Morten Qvenild (keyb), Thomas Strønen (dr) and Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (b) played two long sets with contemporary free jazz impro (ah, the genres), being both quiet and lyrical, and blowing up a full storm. Qvenild even fronted the band in a beautiful lullaby (Brahm's lullaby I think).
Since my pictures were even worse than usual, I hereby give you the cover of the album they have just released on Clean Feed called "Breaking the Mold" (the concerts are free, but the money is spent on the records they sell!). This one was recorded at the Molde International Jazz Festival in 2006, and the title just might be a response to Karin Krog's "Break of day in Molde". The record sounds good too, and since I'm fond of crazy titles, here they are:"Mold", "MoL ded", "MolDer" og "Breaking Them Old".
