DEK - Is a trio that creates music which displays the impact that improvisation, new composition, and the genres of rock, funk, and afrobeat have on each other. First established in September of 2014, the group has worked together on a regular basis in Europe, and will release their first album on the Trost label in 2016; a year which will feature performances by the band in New York City during Vandermark's Stone residency during January, in Milwaukee as part of the Option Milwaukee series, and during an extensive tour of Europe in October.

First release is “First Blow”, a live recording from Molde Jazzfestival 2013; both on vinyl 12” EP and CD that are both sold out (!). Second out is a 4-LP box set and 3-CD box with material recorded during a tour of Norway in January/February 2014, which will be released in October 2014. Summer of 2014 saw the band busy at Moers Festival, Kongsberg Jazzfestival and the Blow Out festival in Oslo. Reviews from Moers claimed PNL Large Unit as one of the highlights of the festival.

The music is composed by Nilssen-Love but is open enough for the players to focus on interaction, free improvisation, sound, dynamics and energy. The band is stripped down to single players, duoes etc and at times split into several groups. The power of the whole groups is of course a treat in itself when in full blast. Traces of Nilssen-Love´s experience from groups like Peter Brötzmann Chicago tentet, Ken Vandermark´s Territory band and Frode Gjerstad´s Circulasione Totale Orchestra are of course evident. There is no doubt that Nilssen-Love has taken inspiration from his years in these bands but still with the aim to create a new group with a sound of it´s own.

En Europa, de gira entre el 1 y el 20 de noviembre de 2016

 

Saber que fueron los escogidos por David Bowie para tocar y grabar su último disco Black Star, puede dar una idea de su excelencia... Love and Living, es un buen ejemplo, !a disfrutar! 

It was in many ways a dream come true although I'm not sure I could have dreamed of such a thing. And now I'm equal parts sad and grateful for everything that has happened. David Bowie was an inspiration to work with and Blackstar is a testament to the time Mark Guiliana, Tim Lefevbre, Jason Lindner, Ben Monder, and I spent with him last year.

-Donny -
