Mats Aleklint/Per-Ake Holmlander/Paal Nilssen-LoveFish & Steel ... CD
PNL (Norway), 2019. New Copy ... $13.99
Mats Aleklint is a hell of a trombonist – free, opened-up, and able to craft so many different sounds from his instrument, he always really blows us away! And here, he's working in a trio that definitely pushes his sonic range – given that Per-Ake Holmlander plays tuba, which really deepens the quality of the music – and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love is at his usual intense best on both drums and added percussion! The phrasing of both brass instruments is great, but we're especially in love with Aleklint on the record – and maybe hear his strengths here even more than on any previous release, partly because the album features two very long improvisations, neither of which falter at all in their extended musical journey. Titles include "Blow Out" and "Sangbolaget". CD

Arashi (Akira Sakata/Johan Berthling/Paal Nilssen Love)Jikan ... CD
PNL (Norway), 2019. New Copy ... $13.99
Legendary Japanese reedman Akira Sakata joins younger improvisers Johan Berthling on bass and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums and percussion – and really seems to shape their performance, given the results of the record! Sakata blows both alto sax and bass clarinet – always with that rich, raw tone that's made him so great for so many decades – and he also vocalizes occasionally, with an earthy quality that's very powerful, and very different than his saxophone work. Paal is maybe a bit more restrained than usual, really letting Sakata set the scene for most numbers – then finding the right way to embrace and embolden the sound – and Berthling proves again that he's one of the more sensitive improvisers in recent years, while still very much holding his own in the trio. Titles include "Jikan", "Saitaro Bushi Arashi", "Yamanoue No Okura", and "Tsuioku". CD

Ken Vandermark & Paal Nilssen-LoveScreen Off ... CD
PNL (Norway), 2019. New Copy ... $13.99
The title here might seem a bit unusual, but it's a reference to Youtube, which is the source of all the material used on the album – about a decade's worth of performances by Ken Vandermark and Paal Nilssen-Love – captured by fans, cleaned up by the pair, and lined up here as a fantastic live document of their longstanding sympathies for each other as improvising musicians!Ken is often at his most sonically intense – blowing a variety of reed instruments with plenty of full-on force to match the always-driving percussion of Paal Nilssen-Love – who's clearly hitting a lot of those powerhouse moments the fans love to capture so much. All tracks are improvised, captured from live recordings around the world – and the set features 21 selections in all! CD

✨✧ Joe McPhee/Paal Nilssen-LoveSong For The Big Chief ... CD
PNL (Norway), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set dedicated to the legendary drummer Sunny Murray – who passed just a few days before the recording of this live set, and who also gave the world a fantastic album with Big Chief as the title – but a record that's very much in the best sort of spirit you might expect from the great Joe McPhee and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love! If anything, McPhee seems to have grown even more as a musician in recent years – really re-igniting our interest every time we get a chance to hear him, and definitely following that upsurge of intensity on the long title improvisation on this set – beginning with really soulful work on tenor, as Nilssen-Love then comes in with very strong support on drums once Joe turns on the heat! The set also features two shorter numbers, but both equally wonderful and with a new sort of energy – "A Fantasy For Lester" and "Knox". CD

✨✧ Paal Nilssen-Love/Carl Magnus Neumann/Bjornar Andresen/Eivind Opsvik/Ketil GutvikQuintet – Events 1998/1999 (5CD set) ... CD
PNL (Norway), Late 90s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
A huge document of a really special group – a meeting of two different generations of Norwegian improvisers who made some really incredible sounds together! The Quintet only released one album back in the day, so this 5CD set really expands the group's recorded output – and stands as a tremendous tribute to an ensemble who really found a way to resonate strongly with each other. The songs are all improvised, and untitled, but have a much more tuneful vibe than you might expect – almost echoing an earlier generation of modernism that first found root in the Swedish and Norwegian scenes of the late 60s, built a bit upon ideas from a few years before, woven with some of the new freedoms of the European jazz world. There's definitely plenty of dark or frenzied moments, but there's also more subtle elements at work too – delivered beautifully by a lineup that includes Carl Magnus Neumann on alto, Bjornar Andresen and Eivind Opsvik on basses, Ketil Gutvik on guitar, and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums and percussion. The use of the double basses really gives the group a distinct, unique vibe – and the box features two booklets of notes and photos that further testify to their really unique legacy. CD
