Frode Gjerstad / Kent Carter / John Stevens: Detail - 90

The group Detail first played together in December 1981. After a short period when the Norwegian pianist Eiven One Pederson was a member, it stabilised as a trio comprising Norwegian saxophonist Frode Gjerstad, South African bassist (and one-time Blue Note artist) Johnny Dyani, and British drummer John Stevens; these three recorded the group's first album, Backwards and Forwards (Impetus, 1983), in Norway, in October 1982. More albums followed, with Ness (Impetus, 1986) featuring guests Bobby Bradford, Harry Beckett and Courtney Pine, and Way It Goes/Dance of the Soul (Impetus, 1988) also including Bradford. Tragically, this incarnation of Detail was cut short by the death of Dyani in October 1986, aged 40.
