descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This recording draws influence from the music of the Japanese shakuhachi, contemporary electronica, Scandinavian folk music, both European and American jazz traditions as well as tonal, atonal and microtonal composition. The majority of the tunes are penned by the saxophonist who is in good company. Many jazz fans will know Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson from his work with Jim Black's Alas No Axis. Per Oddvar Johansen has a number of ECM releaces under his belt with The Source, Trygve Seim and Christian Wallumrød while Rune Nergaard performs regularly with Bushman's Revenge who can be heard on the Runegrammofon label."-Saturn Musikk

"Fans of the Scandinavian approach to contempoary jazz will be rewarded with the release of saxophonist Daniel Rorke's two recordings on the satumusikk label.Warm, sparse, compelling and regularly challenging these releases pay jazz a homage whilst transversing traditional folk music of Norway. Both recorded in 2009,'Fear of Faces, The Mismeasure of Man' is in the trio format, whilst 'San'an' the second cd,is a quartet. San'an has the added advantage of having legendary ECM producer Jan Erik Konghaug behind the desk.Bassist Rune Nergaard is featured beautifully on both discs,whilst guitarist Hilmar Jensson is heard only on "San'an". Drummer Per Oddvar Johnansen is on "San'an" and finally drummer Tomas Jarmyr on the earlier recording. Exquisitely played, these two cds are both worthy additions to new European music."-John O'Brien Radio RTRFM Australia
