Live at Jazz Fest Saalfelden 2011 marks the third iteration of the quintet led by the powerful Norwegian bassist and composer Ingebrigt Håker Flaten. In fact, this time out the quintet has actually become a sextet with the addition of the acclaimed vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz. As the album title says, the music was cut live at the prestigious International Jazzfestival Saalfelden in Austria in August of 2011, a concert that marked the first-ever performance by this particular line-up.
It should come as no surprise that Håker Flaten forges yet another new approach here, easing the ferocity that’s distinguished much of his playing and that often characterizes that sound of Chicago improvised music. The bassist lived in Chicago for several years, but he’s been working with its musicians for even longer. In addition to Adasiewicz, guitarist Jeff Parker, saxophonist Dave Rempis, and drummer Frank Rosaly are all key figures of the Windy City scene, while violinist Ola Kvernberg is a fellow Norwegian. His new music favors something more contemplative, yet if one really looks at his work over the long haul they’ll realize that the bassist has always demonstrated broad stylistic concerns.
