Stavanger, Norway's Kitchen Orchestra weren't about to kick all the regulars out when they settled in for their five-day residency at SuperDeluxe. Instead, the jazz/improv ensemble will be performing as part of the venue's monthly Test Tone and Morgan's Organ nights, as well as at a psychedelic music/dance fest and at a more highbrow concert and discussion session helmed by art curator Takashi Azumaya. The highlight comes on the final night, when they reprise Pulse, the collaboration with Japanese visual artists Tetsuya Nagato and Hiraku Suzuki that they first performed at last year's Maijazz Festival in Norway.
