This new album from the Frode Gjerstad Trio shouldn’t really need much explanation – Frode Gjerstad and Paal Nilssen-Love’s have been playing together for a very long time, and the Frode Gjerstad Trio has been their main foundation for this ongoing work. But with their new album “Forgotten City” for PNL Records there’s a twist: the “trio” now has two double bass players. And neither is a speical guest brought in to spice things up. Øyvind Storesund and Jon Rune Strøm have both served time in the trio, but now they’re playing at the same time. This combination expands the music, as Storesund and Strøm both with great ease switch who has the role of the bass-player, with the other going free form. Listening to them play it’s often hard to tell who is playing what. This flexibility opens up new areas for Gjerstad and Nilssen-Love to explore. With the release of “Forgotten City” Norway’s premier free-jazz trio sounds as fresh and exciting as when they started. Double double bass.
