HI Fi - News

«A young percussionist who has understood and absorbed Tony Oxley´s step beyond Elvin Jones, Paal Nilssen-Love is here recorded solo in Sofienberg Church in Oslo. The resonant acoustic surprised the drummer - used to clubs and studios - and he abandoned some of his material in order to explore it. What results is rich and detalied, a sly wit gently deflating any portentousness, with intimate vocal-mimickry from rim.shots and skull-hits. Anyone attracted to the speculative soundworld of Varèse´s lonisation or the work of Roger Turner will find this album fascinating. Thomas Hukkelberg´s recording is a hi-fi wonder.
