POCKET CORNER - Spanish Tour 2015 04 Nov 2015

The Norwegian ensemble Pocket Corner is one of the longest running and most important projects on the Free Jazz scene in its country. Created and directed by the trumpet player Didrik Ingvaldsen in 1986, Pocket Corner has become an institution over the years. Many musicians from the current Norwegian avant garde scene have been part of the ensemble at some point; among them, Paal Nilssen-Love. Inheriting the Free sounds developed by Ornette Colema, they bring elements of Nordic Jazz and free improvisation to their music.
