Flight (Thorgeir Stubø album)
Flight (released 1988 in Oslo, Norway by Hot Club Records - HCR 25) is a studioalbum (LP) by the Norwegian guitarist Thorgeir Stubø, including two live recordings.
This is the fourth album by Thorgeir Stubø released in 1985, and is a mixture of studio and live recordings from a concert in Tromsø, and consists of a variety of lineups. The record is perhaps the Stubø album that have the greatest diversification of styles. In addition to the traditional hard bop format, presented through songs like «Swinging till the girls come home» (Oscar Pettiford), «Nica's Dream» (Horace Silver), Stubø presents more modern, Pat Martino oriented influence through his own, more modal-based compositions, «Flight» and «For Wes and Pat». On Wayne Shorter's classic «Fall», there is also used synthesizer, and electric piano is also represented on a track. Fred Lacey's gorgeous ballad «Theme for Ernie» as made famous by Coltrane, also interpreted the great trio with acoustic guitars, like «Chelsea Bridge» (Strayhorn) and «Autumn in New York» (Duke).
