One of the best reviews I think I ever had came in the form of the Norwegian jazz magazine JazzNytt at our temporary address in Berlin today. The review is longer than what’s in the picture of course, and concentrates on the concert we played this summer in Norway’s finest cathedral “Nidarosdomen” in Trondheim. This was actually the second gig ever with Pale Horses, and we even had the amazing Susanna Wallumrød with us on vocals for a few tunes and Joakim Faxvåg (who toured with Pheonix for years) worked his magic with loads of projectors, cameras and lights.
Writing buckets of new music, some very intense days of rehearsing for hours on end, planning and rigging for maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to play new music in this space with the finest of people.
Quite possibly the most intense moment in this gig was just before the start, walking up the dimly lit west wing of the church alone – a totally insane 50 metres. I had never done a vocal-only piece before all alone, but where could it possibly fit better than to do it at the gig I had dreamt of for years. I never even thought I would ever play in this place, so thanks to the festival Olavsfestdagene as well!
Anyway…thanks Jan Granlie and JazzNytt for making my day!
