Arild Andersen’s compilation takes a zigzag path through his discography highlighting his own groups, his soloistic brilliance as a bassist and his perceptiveness in recognizing talent in bud. Quite a few musicians received early exposure through Andersen’s efforts. Amongst them: Bill Frisell, Nils Petter Molvær, Jon Balke, Bendik Hofseth, Bugge Wesseltoft and, more recently, Vassilis Tsabropoulos. Andersen’s :rarum also includes encounters with established masters Paul Motian, Kenny Wheeler, and Ralph Towner. “It’s been some fantastic years with ECM, and I feel I’ve just started.”
