Om Paal Nilssen-Love Large Unit
Paal Nilssen-Love Large Unit blev dannet i sommeren 2013 og udgøres af en række højkompetente musikere fra Norges yngre generation af improvisations-musikere. Gruppens første udgivelse, “First Blow”, var en live-optagelse fra Molde Jazzfestival 2013, der blev udsolgt på både cd og vinyl. Ensemblet, der har optrådt på alt lige fra Moers Festival og Kongsberg Jazzfestival til Blow Out Festival, udsendte efterfølgende en tredobbelt cd/lp med optagelser fra en turné rundt i det norske i starten af 2014. Paal Nilssen-Love komponerer gruppens stykker, men der er tale om en åben proces med masser af mulighed for improvisation. Den kreative kraft bag ensemblet har tidligere arbejdet med stærkt toneangivende størrelser som Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet, Ken Vandermarks Territory Band og Frode Gjerstads Circulasione Totale Orchestra, som han har ladet sig inspirere af, samtidig med at han forfølger sin egen vision. Paal Nilssen-Love Large Unit har i øvrigt et dansk islæt med denne aften i form af Julie Kjær, der kommer fra Aarhus.

Mini-interview med Paal Nilssen-Love
What can the audience expect from the show?
“I’d say hope for the best, expect the worst? No no – we always play recordings of Ethiopian 7” singles before we play and between the sets; this sets a very nice atmosphere for both us, and the audience. After the show we go to Brazil. I’d say that people should expect to get their ears blown off but also some more subtle parts – the music is quite abstract but there’s plenty of blowing, grooves, sections of riffing and so on and I’ve noticed that the audience really get a kick out of all the battles that happen in the music. Wouldn’t mind to sit in the audience myself and see the madness go on. Looking forward.”

What’s the best thing about touring?
“Not having much time to do email – no no, being on the road with people you love and like playing music with is fantastic. It’s quite amazing and it’s very hard to describe the exhilaration of touring. It’s intense and you push yourself and the others further and further. Hard on the body but you get such a kick out of playing music, hanging out with the band, meeting old friends, making new friends and so on. I just can’t stop.”

What merch do you bring?
“Tons: We have a limited EP on both CD and vinyl, a longer piece called “Riofun” which was recorded live in concert in Amsterdam on the 7th of May and released for the North America tour starting on the 13th of June. We also have a photo book from the two previous tours of 2015 which also includes two CD’s with recordings from two of the shows. This however, will not be ready for the coming tour I’m afraid. But we will have quite an extensive merch table on hand, including the 4LP/3CD/3MC box, t-shirts, tote bags, “Riofun” on CD and vinyl + underwear for both boys and girls.”

What’s the best thing about returning home after a tour?
“Making myself a nice cup of tea. English breakfast tea that is: PG tips. some milk and a pinch of sugar.”
