Fear of Faces
Daniel Rorke Saxophones and Laptop / Rune Nergaard Bass / Tomas Järmyr Drums
Recorded by Stein Bratland in Skansen Lydstudio Trondheim, Norway, May 2009.
Thematic improvisation defines this trio. The Mismeasure of Man is an eclectic mix of music, experiemental yet melodic. These three blaggards of jazz met at the infamous Trondheim Jazzlinja which has educated the vast majority of Norway's jazz talent over the last few decades.Rune Nergaard may be familiar to fans of improvised music as the bassist from the group Bushman's Revenge that record on the Norwegian Runegrammofon label. Daniel Rorke has recently released a CD San'an also on SATU featuring Nergaard, Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson whose work with Jim Black's Alas No Axis is well known, and Per Oddvar Johansen who already has a number of ECM releases under his belt with the likes of Christian Wallumrød, Trygve Seim and The Source.
