Paal Nilssen-Love & Mats Gustafsson: I Love It When You Snore Norwegian drummer/percussionist Paal Nilssen-Love is a young firebrand who has been gaining recognition in rapid fashion! Nilssen-Love has emerged as one of the top improvising drummers on the Euro-jazz circuit. Here he teams with veteran Swedish reedman Mats Gustafsson.

The duo bobs and weaves through seven improvisational works. The musicians patrol through a sequence of multifarious, free-form grooves where Gustafsson performs solely on baritone sax in concert with Nilssen-Love’s renegade polyrhythmic endeavors. However, the artists sustain constant synergy throughout, evidenced by their shrewd sense of the dynamic and alluring tonal contrasts. The duo’s tight-knit excursions and rhythmically charged micro-themes evolve, disappear, and resurface in odd shapes and sounds. Needless to say, there’s an abundance of rapidly executed twists, turns, peaks and valleys. And while the music they convey resides within the avant-garde scheme of things, the musicians’ coherent dialogues and interleaving fabrics of sound serve as the mark of triumph. Recommended...
