Influenced by the work of Albert Ayler, Eric Dolphy and John Coltrane, Norwegian saxophonist Frode Gjerstad came to prominence as one of British drummer John Stevens' key collaborators. He's led a trio with William Parker and Hamid Drake, was a founding member of Ultralyd, and has performed with Derek Bailey, Han Bennink and Peter Brötzmann. Founded by Gjerstad in 1984, this electro-acoustic and multi-generational large ensemble features some of the most talented improvisers today, including native Philadelphian Sabir Mateen, South African drummer Louis Moholo-Moholo, and members of experimental Norwegian acts The Thing, Jazkamer, MoHa! and Atomic. Most significantly perhaps is the the inclusion of Bobby Bradford (b.1934), one of the great trumpeters to emerge from the avant-garde. A member of the Ornette Coleman Quartet from 1961 to 1963, it is said that Bradford largely fulfilled the potential of Don Cherry. In his over-60 year career Bradford has collaborated with Eric Dolphy, Wilco's Nels Cline, David Murray and Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra.
