MIC's Listen to Norway series continues with Food's 'Last Supper'
Food’s ‘Last Supper’ features state of the art electro-acoustic improvisation from the Norway-UK all-star quartet whose previous three albums made a well-deserved splash. Fronted by British saxophonist, Food consists of highly renowned Norwegian improvisers; Thomas Strønen (drums, electronics), Mats Eilertsen (bass) and Arve Henriksen (trumpet, voice). The outfit utilises electronics and many of the sounds and textures of ambient music to create their own beautiful post-jazz electronica full of half-note trumpet tones, woody acoustic bass, shiny percussion and sweet sax notes. This recording stands as a lasting statement from a band that has been in a constant state of fruitful evolution.
