WHAT: Norwegian Free Jazz
WHEN: Sat Aug 11
WHERE: Smiths Alternative Bookshop
There’s something about the thought of three Norwegian jazz musicians playing in the homely surrounds of an unconventionally couch-laden, wine-serving bookstore that conjures warm, fuzzy feelings. It’ll likely have a greater effect upon all those who experience the Frode Gjerstad Trio firsthand when they visit Canberra as part of their international tour. Featuring alto sax, clarinets, acoustic bass and drums and with extensive experience in various musical settings (saxophonist Gjerstad and percussionist Nilssen-Love’s 1992 Circulasione Totale Orchestra included a rock band) their ‘European free scene’-inspired jazz will likely keep you comfortably melted into those couches. 7.30pm. $15 door.
