Klaus Ellerhusen Holm – alto saxophone, Bb clarinet
David Stackenäs – acoustic guitar, preparations

The dry but warm sound of wood, steel, divergent tunings and interweaving patterns combined with a vague image of Appalachian woods and chequered shirts. These are the things that came into my head when picking my brain about this duo. I had been listening to American folk inspired improvised music for a while before doing this recording, and wanted to try something similar but with the perhaps less usual combination of clarinet and guitar. Then I contacted David Stackenäs who’s playing I had been relishing for some time, and the group was formed in 2013. “Daytons Bluff”, the duos first recording, track one and two was recorded live at Blow Out in Oslo, while the remaining tracks where recorded in David’s studio in Stockholm during May 2016. I’m very glad we finally got to finish the music and get it out into the public, hope you enjoy it.
