Gunhild Seim

For those of you collecting Robert Wyatt references, here is another one. Norwegian jazz magazine Jazznytt (no 3, 2013) hear elements of Soft Machine and Robert Wyatt on Gunhild Seim´s album "Story Water" (Drollehålå 2013).

OK, if I might agree to some extent. The track "A dream within a dream" embedded here, is not a typical one, as if any of the tracks are (think rock, jazz, pop and lots more!), but the track "Pale sunlight" just might have been a Robert Wyatt song.

This live recording is a commissioned work for the Vossajazz festival  in 2012.

Musicians: Gunhild Seim (trumpet, percussion, vocals), Trym Bjønnes (vocals, guitar), Klaus Ellerhusen Holm (clarinet, baritone sax), Petter Frost Fadnes (c-mel sax, baritone sax), Vidar Schanche (guitar, vocals), and Ståle Birkeland (drums, electronics, vocals).

A highly recommended album.
