Gjerstad, Frode / Anders Hana / Morten Olsen / Per Zanussi
Born To Collapse
Released in: Norway
"Renegade Norwegian multi-reedman Frode Gjerstad takes charge of this woodwinds/guitar/bass/drums outing, which teems with shrieking lines, split tones and free improvisation. The album consists of three variations of the title piece. Especially through bassist Per Zanussi's live electronics and Anders Hana's chopping and slicing electric guitar lines, the music primarily occupies the red zone. Gjerstad performs on alto sax and clarinets, and the band opts for an acoustic-electric approach, yielding a wild and wooly ride that's unfettered by borders or strictly visualized regimens. Born to Collapse is not for the squeamish traditional jazz aficionado, however the concepts and improvisational encounters work out, given these musicians' willingness to sojourn into the unknown. They explore the twilight zone, so to speak, with an asymmetrically centered, balls-to-the-walls approach."-Glenn Astarita, allaboutjazz.com
