So far it has been a guitar weekend.
Friday night I´m glad I chose to go and see Mikkelborg/Rypdal/Rypdal (Palle Mikkelborg (tp), Terje Rypdal (g), Marius Rypdal (electronics)), at the Bergen Jazzforum club. The audience were stunned by the music of Mikkelborg and father and son Rypdal, and their soundscapes, electronica and howling guitar solos.
As an encore Palle Mikkelborg promised an extraordinary Danish-Norwegian cooperation, and you may enjoy all of it in the video below.
Saturday I attended a double lunch concert at Bergen´s music library with the guitar duo Frevo (Pål Granum and Andreas Karlsen) and Kim Myhr.
Frevo played a set of composed contemporary music (very fine indeed, especially when Robert Johnson met Vivaldi) and Kim Myhr played a fantastic (partly) improvised set on 12 string guitar. I was surprised he didn´t use electronics, but had to realize the droning was made by overtones.
