Drummer Ståle Liavik Solberg writes about the Blow Out! Festival of Free Jazz & Improvised Music at Cafe Oto this weekend:

After four years of successful festivals and a concert series at Cafe Mir in Oslo, Blow Out! have decided to make something special for our fifth anniversary. So this year, we are extremely happy to be able to present these fantastic musicians and bands, and also our festival, in London. Cafe Oto is the perfect partner for such an adventure which promises two nights of great music!
