Iceland-born guitarist Hilmar Jensson (1966) displays a broad stylistic range,
from pure noise to hard-rock riffing.
He recorded a couple of discs with tenor saxophonist Chris Speed and an
Iceman Is (november 2001), with three improvisers on ice instruments
(ice trumpet, ice harp and ice percussion).
Tyft (december 2001 - Songlines, 2002) is a trio with Andrew D'Angelo (alto saxophone and bass clarinet) and Jim Black (drums and electronics).
They are reminiscent of
noise-jazz-rockers such as
but with the addition of Albert Ayler's childish
The quintet (with Herb Robertson on trumpet, Andrew D'Angelo on reeds, Trevor Dunn on acoustic bass and Jim Black on drums) that recorded Ditty Blei (november 2002 - Songlines, 2004) was basically an extension of Tyft.
Tyft's second album, Meg Nem Sa (june 2005 - Skirl, 2007), offers 13 (frequently
brief) fragments of vibrant and jarring music. The duets between guitar and sax
can sound like random forest sounds during a storm or they can coalesce into
hyper-charged rock music or they can indulge in swinging melodic themes.
One form coexists with the other with little or no trauma.
