Arild Andersen assembled this distinguished line-up for a dynamic one-off concert at the 1981 Molde Jazz Festival. CD reissue adds more than 20 minutes of previously unreleased material, and the original dramaturgy of the performance has also been restored.

John Taylor - piano
Arild Andersen - double-bass

Recorded August 1981 - ECM 1236
ECM Records official cd issue of the classic recording from 1982, now expanded to 79 minutes by the addition of 4 previously unreleased bonus tracks. The all-star band features Bill Frisell (guitar), John Taylor (piano), Arild Andersen (double-bass) and Alphonse Mouzon (drums). Item is new and still sealed. I am based in the UK and will despatch the cd the same day as payment is received.
This is a wonderful recording which showcases the talents of all four musicians. Andersen's bass work is (as ever) superb, and Frisell's playing is very representative for this time period (early 80s) with fluid, melodic solos linked with Hendrix influenced distortion. John Taylor deserves special mention for his lyrical solos which remind me of Keith Jarret, Lyle Mays, and Bill Evans. A very rewarding recording with fine bonus tracks on this reissue!
