"Warm, sparse, compelling and regularly challenging... exquisitely played"

-------------------------John O'Brien Radio RTRFM Australia

Thematic improvisation defines this trio. The Mismeasure of 
Man is an eclectic mix of music, experiemental yet melodic. 
These three blaggards of jazz met at the infamous Trondheim 
Jazzlinja which has educated the vast majority of Norway's 
jazz talent over the last few decades.
Daniel Rorke - Saxophones and Laptop
Rune Nergaard - Bass 
Tomas Järmyr - Drums
Recorded by Stein Bratland in Skansen Lydstudio Trondheim, 
Norway, May 2009.

"Fans of the Scandinavian approach to contempoary jazz will 
be rewarded with the release of saxophonist Daniel Rorke's 
two recordings on the satumusikk label.Warm, sparse, 
compelling and regularly challenging these releases pay 
jazz a homage whilst transversing traditional folk music 
of Norway.Both recorded in 2009,'Fear of Faces,The Mismeasure 
of Man' is in the trio format,whilst 'San'an' the second cd,
is a quartet. San'an has the added advantage of having 
legendary ECM producer Jan Erik Konghaug behind the desk.
Bassist Rune Nergaard is featured beautifully on both discs,
whilst guitarist Hilmar Jensson is heard only on "San'an". 
Drummer Per Oddvar Johnansen is on "San'an" and finally 
drummer Tomas Jarmyr on the earlier recording. Exquisitely 
played, these two cds are both worthy additions to new 
European music."
