Andr� Roligheten saxophones / Petter Eldh double bass / Gard Nilssen drums.

"If you ask the names of the most prominent and sought after jazz- and improvised music drummers in Norway, you can be sure to find Gard Nilssen on that list. Anywhere you turn, he�s there, either as a sideman (Team Hegdal, Cortex, Lord Kelvin, Zanussi 5 or Susanne Sundf�r) or leading and co-leading a good number of acclaimed groups (Bushman�s Revenge, Puma, sPacemoNkey or Astro Sonic), some going to the absolute frontier territories of jazz, rock and electric experimentalism. With �Firehouse�, he debuts a new trio entirely committed to unplugged music; Gard Nilssen's Acoustic Unity.

In the frontline is an astonishing revelation of a saxophone player, Andr� Roligheten. Whether as half of the duo Albatrosh, or in the tighter context of the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, collaborating with the psych-rock band Motorpsycho, or in free communication with the likes of Axel D�rner, John Edwards and Paal Nilssen-Love, every player would envy his drive and capacity to instantaneously re-invent melody and rhythm while improvising.

Petter Eldh, Berlin based bassplayer, known for his work with the Django Bates trio, Lillinger/Slavin/Eldh trio, Peter Evans and Tobias Delius among others, is another idiosyncratic figure, perfect for the cause; claiming references as diverse as Dr. Dre, Charlie Parker and Peter Br�tzmann, he�s definitely the right choice for maintaining the backbone of these tunes and at the same time always being ready to cross the winds."
