I half wrote a comment on one of your earlier posts, but never got round to submitting it. I note on 5B that you refer to the brilliant Jazz Satellites comp, but other than that I'm a tad dismayed at the lack of reference to the whole Norwegian thing that for me was a breath of fresh air in an honourable but increasingly inward-looking scene. So here's my quick round-up: Supersilent - amazing jazz noise quartet that could have taken on Last Exit and won sometimes. Eivind Aarset - ambient guitarist who combined beautifully produced soundscapes with breakbeats and electronica Wibutee - improvisation meets electronica and dance beats Food - Anglo-Norwegian folk/jazz/ambient quartet feat. Arve Henriksen and Iain Ballamy Nils Petter Molvaer - Khmer - okay, it was downhill after this, but his debut did engage with Miles' too often ignored challenge Bugge Wesseltoft - New Conception of Jazz These people were engaging with and convincingly integrating the popular (dance-oriented) music of their time. It was and still is exciting music that seems to have failed to impact significantly on the American market, which is a shame in my opinion.
