An amusing title for an instrumental duo, perhaps; however, after the confrontational opener by Stig Nordhagen (inspired apparently by a bad day at work!), synthesis is restored with a melodious Fantasia by Arne Rodfelt Olsen. There is great variety in this collection of trombone and organ repertoire, including jazz and blues from the pen of Jon Laukvik. The substantial Missa by Olsen is a complete setting of the Latin ordinary, with voice replaced by trombone. The Gregorian-inspired melodies are expressively declaimed by Marius Hesby, with dexterous support from Anders Eidsten Dahl on the organ.
