Further Definitions: Pepper Adams with the Per Husby Trio, 1979

Thanks to drummer Espun Rud, who located his 1979 appointment book, I now have definitive information on Pepper Adams' 1979 tour of Norway with pianist Per Husby. Thanks too to Husby for forwarding me the data. Gaps below indicate venues that still remain unknown. It's also not known if the gigs of 23-24 March were done at the same place. A photo of the band is linked from the Chronology at pepperadams.com and can be seen at pepperadams.com's Photos section.

  1. Here's an update from Per Husby:

    Hi,

    A couple of venues have surfaced: Stavanger on Mar 13 was at Loftet, De Røde Sjøhus. Tromsø 23-24 was at Prelaten. I shall send out a few emails to people in Kristiansund and Bodø that might remember where we played. (Neither Espen nor I do.)

    Per
