Large Unit

Touring Europe in May, August, October and November

Available dates from April 28 until May 10, 2015

Available dates from August 25 until 30, 2015

Available dates from October 26 until November 8, 2015


Paal Nilssen-Love Large Unit was established summer of 2013 and consists of Norway´s younger generation of improvising musicians.

JON RUNE STRØM, bass. ANDREAS WILDHAGEN, drums. PAAL NILSSEN-LOVE, drums. MATS ÄLEKLINT, trombone. CHRISTIAN MEAAS SVENDSEN, bass. KLAUS HOLM, alto and baritone saxophone, Bb clarinet. KASPER VæRNES, alto saxophone. THOMAS JOHANSSON, trumpet. BØRRE MØLSTAD, tuba. KETIL GUTVIK, guitar. LASSE MARHAUG, electronics.

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.
