This is really turning out to be a week of great music. After Trondheim I headed straight to Stavanger and Maijazz for a concert with a band I’m not played with before, Significant Time. The band is usually a quartet with a vocalist and a rhythm section, but for the occasion they’ve written arrangements for an expanded version featuring André Roligheten (saxes/bass clarinet) and myself. The combination of a local connection, lots of good work on arrangements and rehearsals and inspired musicianship all came together to create a special atmosphere. I don’t think a lot of people outside Stavanger knew the band from before, but after the festival all the journalists mentioned the concert specifically as one of the highlights. We’re planning recording and are looking forward to more gigs in the future!
