Gard Nilssen's Acoustic Unity
Roundhouse - Performance Centre
Time 5:00 pm
One of the most sought-after drummers in Norway’s burgeoning jazz and improvised music scene, Gard Nilssen has worked with Team Hegdal, Cortex, Bushman’s Revenge, and Puma. Known for his ability to go to the absolute frontiers of jazz, rock and electric experimentalism, in Acoustic Unity his “free-bop ruckus, earthy and often swinging” (New York Times) trio of saxophonist André Roligheten and bassist Ole Morten Vågan (Mathias Eick, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra) "carves out a distinctive identity manifest in tight, sometimes involved, arrangements which provide launchpads for focused group exploration set firmly in the jazz lineage" (AllAboutJazz).
