sample the album:
"It may allude to the first name of Karl Hjalmar Nyberg, but the designation Mr K present us the duo founded by the mentioned saxophonist with drummer Andreas Skar Winther. The intended ambiguity of this project goes beyond this personal identity factor - it's everywhere in the music. Mr. K covers all the possible approaches to improvisation, going from the textural, minimalistic and radically abstract, like something AMM would play, to the use of graphic and written notation, entering in more conventional situations - the ones coming from the "outer regions of jazz".
Even if the music continues to be "experimental", this means you can already recognize it formally as "jazz". To complicate things, Nyberg and Winther invited two other musicians, in order to expand vocabularies and interactive perspectives. Both were carefully chosen... Chameleonic bassist Michael Duch has a reductionist trio with Rhodri Davies and John Tilbury, is a member of the rock band Dog & Sky and played with luminaries of the new music field like Pauline Oliveros, Christian Wolff and Tony Conrad.
No less capable to change parameters when the music asks for it, saxophonist Klaus Holm is present in every corner of the creative music scene, either close or far from jazz, side by side with Paal Nilssen-Love, Ivar Grydeland, David Stackenas, Kim Myrh, Stale Storlokken and a few others - for instance, the psychedelic rock group Motorpsycho.
So, forget what you know about improvised music and expect the unexpected..."-Clean Feed RecordsAlso available on CD.
