1982 with BJ Cole
If you have visited this blog some times, you might have noticed that I'm a big fan of Bergen's own folk improv trio 1982, with Nils Økland (violins, fiddles), Sigbjørn Apeland (organs) and Øyvind Skarbø (drums, misc stash).
Wednesday they opened the Nattjazz festival in the Korskirken church, together with BJ Cole on pedal steel guitar. Even if they don' t look too happy on my photo, the concert was quite entertaining, as they played both noisy improvisations (including church organ) and some melancholic country flavored folk improv.
Good for all of you then, that they already recorded for the Hubro label, and you can get the album this autumn. While you are waiting don't forget to check out this one and this one from 1982.
