Bjorkenheim / Parker / Drake: dmg @ the stone December 26, 2006 (DMG ARC)
Label: DMG ARC    
Released in: USA    

"The final week of [DMG's month long festival at The Stone, NYC] began on Tuesday, December 26th with Raoul Bjorkenheim, William Parker and Hamid Drake, another first time meeting. Raoul is a member of the explosive Scorch Trio, one of the most exciting jazz/rock/noise power trios to emerge from Scandinavia and was once in a great quartet called Krakatau (ECM). Raoul asked that we help put him together with his dream rhythm team: William and Hamid! The gig, well attended, was explosive throughout. Raoul also played his electric viol da gimbri, as well as an electric mando/guitar. Raoul looked like a kid who won the lottery and jumped around with glee, overwhelmed to be playing with two other giants who work so well together. As William and Hamid continually whipped up a rhythm storm, Raoul took one furious solo after another. Two incredible sets - the best parts of which are captured on this CD."- BLG
