Arve Henriksen meets Bill Frisell - Live at Moers 2010

Norway’s current high profile status in jazz continued with one of the most important shows of the festival, when Arve (Henriksen) met Bill (Frisell). Their maiden collaborative voyage was long in the planning, dating back to Henriksen’s expressed desire to work with the guitarist. As heard in a pleasingly rambling, spontaneously venturing set, they seem like kindred spirits, lyrical players with experimentalist proclivities and instantly identifiable sounds on their instruments. One strange, seemingly out-of-character moment came when Henriksen inducted the crowd into a singalong, but otherwise, the pairing felt heaven sent and destined for future doings.

As usual, Frisell—also here with his new trio with violinist Eyvind Kang and drummer-deserving-great-recognition Rudy Royston showed his uncanny penchant for mixing high, deep art and comfort food. He played an encore of “Sunny Side of Life” with the trio and, with Henriksen, an encore of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now,” duly Frisell-ified.

The idea of forming a duo with Bill Frisell stems from the time when Arve Henriksen was Artist in Residence here in 2006. Now, four years later, the encounter between one of Europe's greatest improvisers and one of North America's greatest improvisers has finally been made possible. Henriksen claims that Frisell is the musician who has had the greatest influence on him. What the two have in common is the fact that neither of them are jazz musicians in the strict sense, but folk musicians in the best sense.
