The very first New Music Friday did not disappoint. Coucheron, Lindstrøm and Astrid S was just some of the many artists who released new tracks this week.
Paal Nilsen-Love’s Large Unit have toured North America with several shows over the last month to great reviews. On the ensemble’s show at TD Vancouver Jazz International Festival DownBeat Magazine writes:
(…) performance by Nilssen-Love’s 11-piece Large Unit lived up to its billing as a sonic representation of the Nordic landscape, with instrumental drama, long, open passages of spacious improvisation, and some dry patches of empty space.
