Album: 1982 (Nils Okland, Sigborn Apeland, Oyvind Skarbo) Pintura, (Hubro)
Sunday 15 January 2012
This extraordinary album of chamber-style improvisations by the Norwegian trio of Okland (violin/Hardanger fiddle), Apeland (harmonium/Wurlitzer) and Skarbo (drums) lasts a little over half an hour and casts a very powerful spell.
It's free jazz, if you like, but there's no difficulty at all (and in truth, not very much jazz). Rather, the atmosphere can suggest, at different times, medieval liturgical music, finger in the ear folk, and the Velvet Underground, which is a pretty good combination.
