Album Notes
In early October 2002 David Jackson spent a week in Bergen, Norway, giving concerts and seminars as well as working with a group of disabled children from Bergen’s municipal music school. I had grown up listening to his playing, in the form of his defining and inimitable contributions to the music of the radical British band Van der Graaf Generator. Although his schedule while in Bergen was to keep him busy from morning till night for five days in a row, I could not resist the temptation of booking a jam session with him.
The choice for the rest of the ensemble was obvious. I have known and played with Einar Røttingen and Jostein Stalheim for many years. Our improvising outfit, “Le Jury” has provided the three of us with many occasions of joyful, childlike musical exploration.
And so, on the morning of Thursday October 3rd we all arrived at a studio in the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation’s Bergen headquarters. After exchanging greetings, and without any discussion whatsoever, we began to play. Then we had lunch and played some more. The session yielded two and a quarter hours’ worth of material. Five years later I was finally able to delve into the recordings and edit them down to a manageable CD length. This is the result.
