Supersilent 6

Supersilent is a Norwegian improv band rumored to not even communicate outside of live performances. There people are that intense about it, and the music they create is very original, but never fall sinto the rut of endless dissonant passages as seen from other free improv bands. Especialyl notable in the band is Arve Henriksen, one of the best trumpet players living today. One simply needs to hear "6.2" to be convinced of this, and of the whole band's talent at creating remarkably rich melodies ON THE FLY.

Must hear.
