"If you ask the names of the most prominent and sought after jazz and improvised music drummers in Norway, you can be sure to find Gard Nilssen on that list. Anywhere you turn, he's there, either as a sideman (Team Hegdal, Cortex, Lord Kelvin, Zanussi 5 or Susanne Sundfor) or leading and co-leading a good number of acclaimed groups (Bushman's Revenge, Puma, sPacemoNkey or Astro Sonic), some going to the absolute frontier territories of jazz, rock and electric experimentalism. With "Firehouse", he debuts a new trio entirely committed to unplugged music; Gard Nilssens Acoustic Unity.

In the frontline is an astonishing revelation of a saxophone player, Andre Roligheten. Whether as half of the duo Albatrosh, or in the tighter context of the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, collaborating with the psych-rock band Motorpsycho, or in free communication with the likes of Axel Dorner, John Edwards and Paal Nilssen-Love, every player would envy his drive and capacity to instantaneously re-invent melody and rhythm while improvising.

Petter Eldh, Berlin based bassplayer, known for his work with the Django Bates trio, Lillinger/Slavin/Eldh trio, Peter Evans and Tobias Delius among others, is another idiosyncratic figure, perfect for the cause; claiming references as diverse as Dr. Dre, Charlie Parker and Peter Brotzmann, he's definitely the right choice for maintaining the backbone of these tunes and at the same time always being ready to cross the winds."-Clean Feed
