Passing Images

ECM: “Frode Haltli is acknowledged as one of the most outstanding accordion soloists in contemporary music and is also an exceptional improviser and an authority on folk music. ‘Passing Images’ looks at traditional music, but in a very fresh and non-traditional way, through the knowledge acquired over the years and bringing together a unique cast of musicians. Repertoire includes a psalm from the western fjords, a lyrical waltz from Haltli’s home village near the Swedish border, a Roma traveller tune that suggests Albert Ayler’s sound-world and much more. A kaleidoscopic view of traditional music, continually recast by four highly-gifted musicians. Personnel: Frode Haltli – accordion, Arve Henriksen – trumpet, Garth Knox – viola, Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje – voice”
