Håkon Kornstad: "Dwell time"

Håkon Kornstad: tenor and bass saxophones, flute, fluteonette and live electronics. "Dwell Time" (Jazzland 2009) is Kornstad´s second solo album. It was recorded in Oslo´s Sofienberg Church, the music was improvised there, and hardly edited afterwards. In the cover Kornstad says he wanted to dwell in one mood, instead of showing a lot of variety, like on the previous solo album "Single Engine" (Jazzland 2007). I like both albums, and the new tune "Oslo" is almost as beautiful as "Sweden" from "Single Engine". You may still listen to the album here.
