Henrik Frisk's Pli at Kopasetic Festival 2009 (2)

This is a video from the same concert as this previous post. Here a quartet formed out of the ten piece band (me on tenor, Samuel Hällqvist on guitar, Nils Ölmedal on bass, and Peter Nilsson on drums) is performing my piece Friday Intro. As is hinted at by the title Friday Intro, is an introduction to another piece (Friday 13/3) which we played immediately following this one in the concert. I'm really impressed by the way the rhythm section plays the rubato time yet keeping up with the relatively swift harmonic progression.

Henrik Frisk's Pli at Kopasetic Festival 2009 (1)

This is a video from the premiere of my band Pli. The concert was held at Victoriateatern in Malmö and features some of my favorite musicians. This tune is an arrangement and re-composition that I did of the jazz standard Like Someone in Love onto which we superimpose the original song by Jimmy van Heusen. The solo in the middle is a trio with Sten Sandell on piano, myself on tenor and Peter Nilsson on drums.
