In 1974 the great Norwegian bassist Arild Andersen decided to strike out on his own. After six years as Jan Garbarek's bassist (appearing on the important albums "Afric Pepperbird", "Sart" and "Triptykon"), and a parallel career as freelance musician, playing bass for everyone from Don Cherry to Stan Getz, he launched his own group. The first recording from the band ("Clouds In My Head") featured two 19 year olds - drummer Pål Thowsen, a virtuoso from Arild's neighbourhood in Lillestroem, and the then-unknown Jon Balke on piano. On saxophone was Knut Riisnaes, leading light of Oslo's bebop scene. 1976's "Shimri" featured a revised line-up with the great Finnish saxophonist Juhani Aaltonen, a wonderfully expressive player, and Swedish pianist Lars Jansson (a future member of the Jan Garbarek Group) who would also contribute tunes to the quartet. 1978's "Green Shading Into Blue" added discreet use of synthesizers to the group's palette with Lars Jansson now playing Mini-Moog and String Ensemble keyboardas well as piano.. Andersen had been inspired by Herbie Hancock's use of electronic keyboards, but sought to integrate them as colours in a group where "the energy still derived from the core acoustic quartet". Together the three discs in this box present a compelling picture of Andersen's first years as a bandleader. They show his ability to lead an ensemble, to harness young talent and direct it creatively. There are also many fine tunes from Arild's pen and,of course, there is plenty of Arild's tremendous bass playing. As Don Cherry said of Arild Andersen a long time ago: "His sound is so beautiful. You will keep hearing from him."
