Bly de Blyant is a trio of improvisers that denies itself nothing. “Free improvisation is a method, not a genre,” wrote drummer Øyvind Skarbø (1982, Håkon Kornstad Tenor Battle) in the cover text for their debut album ABC. “As soon as it becomes a genre, you lose all your freedom.” In addition to Skarbø the trio comprises Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily (Marc Ribot, Will Oldham, John Zorn) and Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson (Tyft, Jim Black, Trevor Dunn). Skarbø had collaborated with both Jensson and Ismaily on several previous occasions, but Bly de Blyant is the first project where all three are playing together.
