Han & FrodeHan Bennink (Drums), Frode Gjerstad (Saxophone)An hour of serious interplay by two of the most naturally creative minds—both of them having fun without being cute. “Inderoy” in six parts with flow and energy—this is anything other than more of the same. A refreshing dialogue. The Welsh ChapelFrode Gjerstad (Alto Saxophone), John Edwards (Bass), Mark Sanders (Drums)This is Frode Gjerstad's 8th Cadence Jazz Records release, every one of them distinct and refreshing. This CD, recorded in a Welsh chapel over a five hour period, finds Frode playing with fresh nuance and renewed passion. To say he is the most dynamic free improviser in Norway is a qualifier this world-class saxman has long outgrown.

Side By SideFrode Gjerstad, Paal Nilssen-LoveFrode Gjerstad needs no introduction. As one of the most dynamic reedmen in the world, not to mention his native Norway, he has been recorded prolifically and is always interesting. Along with associate Paal Nilssen-Love, the duo "concentrates on the smaller sounds." Not to be confused with pointillism or ambient music this is nevertheless big music of interest. Through the WoodsFrode Gjerstad, Bobby Bradford, Wilber Morris, Newman BakerFrode Gjerstad is a dynamic Norwegian saxman obviously unafraid of the unknown; actually, he embraces it. On this strong quartet date, he matches his aptitudes with Wilber Morris, Newman Baker, and the (legendary?) avant garde trumpeter, Bobby Bradford. They've never sounded better, this is music of emotional and cerebral power. Recorded Sept. 15 & 16, 1997.
