The points of interest in tonight's main set can be listed quickly : The secret word, "Haenna hoona" ("FZ's all-purpose representation of the Swedish language," as Den puts it), enlivens the first few songs, especially "Dickie's." FZ quotes "Handsome Cabin Boy" in his "Black Page" solo. Tonight's improv vehicle, "Pound," starts in a straightforward vein with an exciting Albert Wing solo and a typical Robert Martin one, but things get weird abruptly when Ed Mann gets his turn. The bizarre musical environment here apparently moves FZ to burst into song, and so we get the only "Dangerous Kitchen" of the year.
This set is quite well-performed, but suffers from a setlist that lacks many of the more exciting '88 items. That changes with the first encore, "Crusing For Burgers." Here we get perhaps the definitive rendition (FZ used most of this take on Jazz Noise) of one of the great rediscoveries of the year, a perfect showcase for the majesty of this band and a number where FZ's new sedate soloing style truly makes sense, suggesting mature dignity rather than a lack of energy. This is one of the great moments that only this tour can provide, and explains why the '88 outing deserves a place on the list of great FZ tours in spite of its flaws.
Once again, the energy seems to spill over into the ensuing routine encore choices. "Illinois Enema Bandit" offers an unusually focused and commanding solo, and "Stairway To Hebben," I mean "Heaven," is one of the most amusing so far, with Ike slipping into the Thing Fish voice now and then and FZ adding some equally odd guitar and Synclavier interjections. On to Oslo, and another of the most celebrated nights of the tour.
Thanks for watching and please share!
