Cats vs. Kitchen Utensils
& Easterine Kire
Finito Bacalao Records - 2013
An unusual blend of Naga poetry and Arctic freejazz, this release is a fresh perspective to playful improvised music. The acclaimed poet Easterine Kire sees Northern Norway through Naga eyes, coming as she does from faraway and misty, mountain-topped Nagaland, a region in the North-East of India. The two jazz cats Ola Asdahl Rokkones and Jon-Eirik Boska relentlessly counterpoint the poems, creating unexpected contexts and sounds - like cats playing with a ball of yarn, or perhaps the other way around. Ola Asdahl Rokkones the saxophone, saxophone parts and one cymbal, while Jon-Eirik Boska treats the kitchen utensils!
