Arve Henriksen – Places of Worship - Howard Assembly Rooms, Leeds – 12 March 2015

At the end the audience knew they had been treated to the best of concerts and in return gave a well-deserved long and loud applause.

It may have taken two years since its release to see Places of Worship played in full live, but boy was it worth it.

I can`t think of a more beautiful hall than the Howard Assembly Rooms with its magnificent timber barrelled ceiling to see, as far as I can recall, the first full length concert of Arve Henriksen`s 2013 release of Places of Worship. It had a joint release concert, with Jan Bang`s Narrative From the Subtropics, at Punkt Festival 2013.

Why this is the case I don’t know as it is such a lovely piece.


Arve is joined on stage by Jan Bang and Eivind Aarset. It doesn’t take long to know you are in for a special evening. Arve`s trumpet being delicate and haunting one moment and soaring the next, Jan as always entertaining with his box of tricks and Eivind, well it’s the first time I have seen him close up, he is usually hidden behind a table full of effect gizmos, to fully appreciate all the sonics ...


* The DPM Rating System
When we rate an album or concert etc we rate it on the "Huzzah!" system. A score can be between 1 and 3 huzzahs:
1 Huzzah! - The reviewer likes it. You should give it a listen!
2 Huzzah! - The reviewer recommends it - and is delighted it is part of his/her collection
3 Huzzah! - The reviewer strongly recommends it - and it has already entered heavy rotation on his/her personal playlists.

On rare occasions there may be a 0 Huzzah! review. The reasons will be explained in the article. On equally rare occasions you may even see a 4 Huzzah ... well explain that another time :)

We dont do negative reviews because we review what we like.
