"trio consisting of Lasse Marhaug, Paal Nilssen-Love and M. S. K. Ratkje. Noise and drums. Started as a band because the band members were organising the all Ears festival in Oslo, and we played for every programme release."
Bradford / Gjerstad / Nilssen-Love
"Legendary West Coast cornetist Bobby Bradford meets two Norwegians - drummer Paal Nilssen-Love and multi-reedist Frode Gjerstad - for a live performance at Klub Dragon in Poland. A free outing, the 6 tracks are relatively short, with "Pitaya" the longest at 11 minutes. The dialog is often quite subtle and well informed, using extended techniques and unusual twists and turns that are fascinating to follow. Which isn't to say that the trio doesn't fire up some serious power playing at points, but these three masters find their true language in intelligent interaction, of which there is no end to in these wonderful recordings. Highly recommended."
"Ab Baars, Ken Vandermark & Paal Nilssen-Love form Double Tandem, performing live at Cementen in Norway. Recorded and mixed by Frode Gjerstad."
Terrie Ex & Paal Nilssen-Love
"Ex guitarist Terrie and drummer/percussionist Paal Nilssen-Love met in the Jottem Studio in Wormerveer, NL, to record these 4 extended and rugged improvisations; rhythm vs strings with a skronky temperament."

Paal Nilssen-Love / Anders Hana
"Paal Nilssen-Love and electric guitarist Anders Hana follow up their Utech release (Reissued by PNL Records) "AM/FM" with this 10" record presenting two tracks, "Hand near ass" and "Senvill analpose", in a clear plastic sleeve with testicles on the label. Dark dialog with unusual tension from two formidable players in a unique and disconcerting package. Recorded live at Maijazz Festival in Stavanger, 2011. What more could you need?"
27 Years Later
"Drummer and percussionist Paal Nilssen-Love performed this incredibly diverse solo set at the Forum, Norway during the 2002 Molde International Jazz Festival. The CD was originally released in a limited edition of 150 on the Utech label in 2005. This reissue on Nilssen-Love's own PNL label puts this extraordinary set back in print for a wider audience. Recommended!"
