Classic Album Sundays CAS Oslo presents DeLillos ‘Hjernen Er Alene’

In our series of presentations of Norwegian album classics at the Deichman Public Main Library in Oslo we’ve come to deLillos’ third studio recording ‘Hjernen er alene’ (Sonet, 1989).

In the 90s people were starting to refer to “the great 4”, four local popular bands who rocked and rolled like they meant it and did it in their mother language – not too common in Norway at the time. Alongside DumDum Boys, Raga Rockers and Jokke & Valentinerne you’ld find deLillos, a band who since their debut in 1986 are still making impact on the development of Norwegian rock, proved by their strong 23rd recording released last month, ‘La oss bli fri for all nostalgi’.

deLillos 1989

With ‘Hjernen er alene’ (‘The brain is alone’), and especially the title track, famously covered by fellow Norwegian synth goth band Seigmen in 1994, deLillos created one of the most beautiful expressions of that lost feeling you might yourself have experienced at some point in your life, a sudden awakening of being left alone in the world, trapped inside your own head, in this case, written as a consequence of the loss of a close relative, frontman Lars Lillo-Stenbergs own beloved mother when he was only 18.

Through melancholy and charm, a sweet and clumsy naivism, both lyrically and musically, often with a dark humoristic approach on human trivialities, deLillos have been able to trap all kinds of peoples everyday experiences and made them more vivid and meaningful to us than they normally would.

Together with Lillo-Stenberg himself and Jørn Christensen, producer and multimusician on the album, our local CAS host Kent Horne will take us back to the studio, the recordings and the making of the music before we dim the lights, lean back and listen to the double long player from beginning to end on our audiophile sound system, prepared by sound moleculists Duet Audio.

Cleaning tonights record_1

In the preface of the program that was handed out before the anniversary concert deLillos held in the Oslo Opera House on December 6th, 2009, when the album was 20 years old, Lillo-Stenberg summarized it as follows:

“We know that it’s just a record with a lot of little weird songs that were created over many years, which happened to end up together, but that’s also the same coincidences that’s why we all live. Or is nothing random? These are thoughts that are the source of all religions, but also the reason that I put together the three words:

HJERNEN ER ALENE!

(the brain is alone)

So, dear audience! Let’s enjoy ourselves in fellowship with our lonely brains together tonight!”

JazzWax Rolf Ericson & American Stars

Image

If you check the personnel of Charlie Barnet’s band in 1949—the killer one with arrangements by Bobby Sherwood, Manny Albam, Pete Rugolo, Gil Fuller, Dave Matthews and Johnny Richards—you’ll find a guy named Rolf Ericson in the trumpet section. Ericson sat next to horn players such as Maynard Ferguson, Lammar Wright, Doc Severinsen, Ray Wetzel and Shorty Rogers, as the personnel shifted on the road and in the recording studio. Ericson had come over to the States in 1947 from Sweden to play with Barnet as well as Woody Herman’s Second Herd before returning home. He was back in the States 1952 to record in a fleet of other top bands as well as the Lighthouse All-Stars on the West Coast.

And-duke-jordan-1956-1962-sessions

Then in the spring of 1956, Ericson popped back to Sweden to record with two extraordinary rhythm sections for the country’s Metronome label. That May and June, he recorded with Cecil Payne (bar), Duke Jordan (p), John Simmons (b) and Art Taylor (d) to cut 10 tracks, including one with vocalist Ernestine Anderson. But this group apparently ran afoul of the Swedish drug laws and were sent back to the States. In July, they were replaced on the road in Sweden by Lars Gullin (bar), Freddie Redd (p), Tommy Potter (b) and Joe Harris (d), with Ernestine Anderson (vcl) remaining, where they were recorded live. All of this astonishing music appeared on the American EmArcy label as part of Mercury’s distribution deal with Sweden.

Now, all of it is on the just released Rolf Ericson and His All American Stars (Fresh Sound). Interestingly, the point of gathering the American aritsts for the studio sessioni was to tour the many Swedish Falk Parks during the summer months. The first rhythm section was exceptional—Jordan, Simmons and Taylor. Interestingly, all three would never record together after this encounter. Simmons and Taylor would on trombonist Matthew Gee’s Jazz By Gee, recorded after the ejected musicians returned to New York in 1956. [Photo above, from left, Chet Baker, Miles Davis and Rolf Ericson at the Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach, Calif., in 1953]

All of the musicians are superb, particularly Cecil Payne and Duke Jordan. But the big surprise is Ericson. He played a tight, lyrical trumpet, reminiscent in some ways of Buddy Childers, and his idiomatic feel was pure Birdland. If you dig Ernestine Anderson, the six vocal tracks on this release are solid, but there are few breaks in the vocal for solos. 

Rolf Ericson died in 1997.
