• Paal Nilssen-Love and Frode Gjerstad

Veteran Norwegian free-jazz reedist Frode Gjerstad returns to Chicago with a gig this evening at the Hideout. As usual he’s joined by explosive drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, an even more frequent visitor to our city. Rounding out the lineup is young bassist Jon Rune, a recent addition to the band (who replaced ten-year vet Øyvind Stursund back in April) who’s reportedly a monster on his instrument.
