63rd Annual DownBeat International Critics Poll

The results from DownBeat 63rd Critics Poll was just announced, and even if its a pretty absurd thing overall and you can question why so many amazing players never get listed there; I would of course lie if I said I wasn’t happy to find my name among so many of my heros for both Electric and Acoustic bass. Thanks for the love, DownBeat!!! :-)

Great review of the Rempis Percussion Quartet from Aftenposten

“Ingebrigt Flaten Håker has made a formidable contribution to the vitalization of Norwegian jazz during the last two decades. As a bassist in Element, The Thing, The Electrics and Atomic he have established a high quality on the map in Europe. He has also initiated collaboration with Central American musicians like Joe McPhee, Nate Wooley, Ken Vandermark, Joe Morris, Dave Rempis and Jeff Parker, all documented on first-class releases in Håker Flatens name. The Norwegian bassist live today in Austin, he figures on the annual critics lists in Downbeat and has gained a solid foothold in the American music scene.
The Rempis Percussion Quartet is one of the groups that build Ingebrigt Håker flat name in the US. The quartet is now in its eleventh year, and Håker Flaten joined in 2009, after living in Chicago a few years. The two drummers Tim Daisy and Frank Rosaly forms the backbone of the Quartet, and they cover a broad field. The roots goes down to African and Latin American traditions that give nutritions to intense, changing and complex expressions. Ingebrigt Flaten Håker stands in the middle of the field and charging the music with creative energy. His playing offers familiarity, but it holds primarily an openness that arouses interest.
Dave Rempis switching between alto, tenor and barrytonsaksofon and burn away the traces of Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler. I saw the quartet at Mir a year before these recordings were made at The Hungry Brain in Chicago, and as I remember the Oslo concert, I would say Cash-and-Carry sounds a lot more fresh and edgy. It is possible to say that The Rempis Percussion Quartet build a new floor in the high and lofty Chicago tradition where improvisation gives us the view and the music offers airy jumps.” – Arild R. Andersen
