High notes from the bass (
If a bass player's job is laying a solid foundation,
Arild Andersen is a master Moldejazz handyman.
He's been a regular at the festival, winning acclaim for,
among other things, the quartet album A Molde Concert recorded
during the early 1980s and a �five out of six� score from
a Norwegian newspaper for a 2003 trio performance.
He played four concerts at the 2005 festival ranging from an opening night
electric ensemble before a large crowd, including Norway's prime minister,
to a small venue solo performance. Each of them saw the longtime ECM artist
in a progressive mindset stereotypical of contemporary Scandinavian jazz -
consistently innovative and high in quality.
The opening night �Electra,� initially written for the Summer Olympics
in Athens featured the sort of ambient electronic experimentalism
I'd expect from Moevar's group after seeing a few of his concert videos.
Perhaps that's because it's the only type of this performance from the region
I have experience with, but the synth and sample backgrounds, colorfully changing
lighting, unusual sonics such as trumpeter Arve Henriksen sounding like a Middle Eastern
flute and long-form evolving compositions all bore a resemblence.
Andersen made a delayed entrance, waiting several minutes before entering
with some moderate punctuation of the underlying contemporary beat before
making a statement with some heavy plucking accented by chorused effects.
He switched to a light bowing touch before the ensemble shifted abruptly
into something Euro rockish to close out the 30-minute piece.
