At Kafé Hærverk | Fictional Souvenirs | So Beautiful, It Starts To Rain | Into Darkness

In 2015 Butcher joined the trio of Solberg, Nils Henrik Asheim and Per Zanussi for a brief tour in Norway. Since then they have played mostly in duo - but also in the quartet STRAY and in quintet with Joe McPhee, Agnes Hvizdalek and Pascal Niggenkemper.
They also value special invited guests to form trios - Pat Thomas (CD "Fictional Souvenirs") - Agnes Hvizdalek, Nick Stephens and Kaja Draksler (DL "At Kafé Hærverk").

A CD with Barre Phillips called We met - and then will be released Spring 2021.
