The last time I saw Frode Alnæs, was with his band Dance With A Stranger who played their farewell tour this year. Before that I saw him with the Organ Club, a collaboration of Norwegian organ and jazz enthusiasts. I haven’t seen Frode Alnaes solo before, but Friday night he played with his trio at Olsen på Bryn.
Dance With A Stranger were one of Norway’s biggest acts in the mid 80’s until they disbanded in 1994. They released several CDs, and had top hits in Norway, Sweden and also other European countries. Since 1994 they have had reunions, but now they have started what they say is definitely their last concert tour. Some 25 concerts in 3 months. and then it is over I saw them yesterday at Åsgårdstrand.
