22 May 2008 Frode Gjerstad (alto, clarinets), John Edwards (bass) and Mark Sanders (drums, percussion) played at the Bergen Nattjazz festival. I can not remember why I was not there, but now I may listen to the recordings from the concert on the CD "Bergen" (FMR 2009). I guess touring artists experience a lot, and we may just guess the background for the titles "Waiting for Ryanair" (Part 1 and 2) (four tracks on the record).
If you are sceptical towards free jazz, you have got two recommendations in this blog in a short time, both of them great live recordings. Today "Bergen", and a couple of weeks ago "Reknes" recorded at the Molde Jazz Festival. Frode Gjerstad is central on both of these albums.
