Steam In The Casa


PNL presents Frode Gjerstad Trio's Steam In The Casa. Recorded live in concert at Case Del Popolo, Montreal, Canada on the 27th of November 2015. Frode Gjerstad on the recording: "As the title indicates, we were pretty much steaming. I was really mad because Canada Air had made my old Martin alto sax almost impossible to play: the three lowest notes did not work after they had thrown it around. I got to try a Yamaha modern alto. But I just could not get a strong sound out of it and decided to play my Martin even though it was sort of broken. That gave me an extra push I guess: I really wanted to show to myself that the Martin is good even when it´s crippled! I love the sound in that horn!" From Soundohm: "Frode Gjerstad and Paal Nilssen-Love collaboration goes back to 1992 when Paal joined Frode's Circulasione Totale Orchestra as their second drummer. Since then they have worked together in various settings as a duo, as well in trios and quartet line-ups, counting 25 CDs and LPs documenting their work. The Frode Gjerstad Trio has been around for a long time, but this version of the trio, with bass-player Jon Rune Strøm, made its debut at the Blow Out festival in Oslo, August 2011. The explosive dynamic of the three coming together soon made it a fixed line-up, and since then they've toured all over the world, including Norway, North America, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Steam In The Casa captures the band in full force at Casa Del Popolo and is a solid testament of the trio's high energy.".
