Jan Brönnimann's "Brinkmanship" feat. Nils-Petter Molvaer - Willisau 2007 - now on dime

I've been neglecting the blog now for quite a while - apologies for that. There have been a couple of things that needed to be done in real life, and honestly I'm not quite sure what the future of my blog is... anyway, after a little while, here's a new upload on dime to announce, at least - last night's concert of Jan Brönnimann's "Brinkmanship" with special guest Nils-Petter Molvaer. Spacious ambient jazz with lots of quiet lyrical passages but lots of good grooves, too - I enjoy this band quite a bit, and the addition of Molvaer doesn't do any harm, for sure!
