RCD 2058 - Huntsville: For The Middle Class (CD)
Huntsville is the trio of Ivar Grydeland, Tonny Kluften and Ingar Zach. Grydeland and Zach founded the Sofa label for impovised music in 2000 and appear together and in various projects on several of the label´s releases. They have worked with Kluften since 1998, as the core of improvising ensemble No Spaghetti Edition. Huntsville contrasts sharply with their earlier work, and on the evidence of ”For The Middle Class”, reveals a quite different, more groove-based approach with strong elements of composition. Musically there are traces from folk, country, Indian ragas contemporary music and more, resulting in an original and highly intriguing blend of instrumental approaches.
