Ballrogg: Cabin Music (Hubro 2012)
Klaus Ellerhusen Holm (sax) and Roger Arntzen (b) of Ballrogg have moved from from Bolage (where they released their first two albums) to Hubro, and are joined by Ivar Grydeland (Huntsville and Dans les Arbres) (g, pedal steel, banjo) on "Cabin Music".
Ballrogg invited guest musicians to play on the fine "Insomnia" (2010) too (Lars Myrvoll, Ole-Henrik Moe and Kari Rønnekleiv), but I hope Ivar Grydeland will stick around for a while.
This trio sounds great.
My iTunes classify this music as ambient, but it´s not! I will call it experimental minimalistic chamber country jazz (take that, iTunes!). Four tracks, 35 minutes all in all! Perfect!
