The double-disc One More Shot includes a remastered version of Danko/Fjeld/Andersen's self-titled album from 1991 along with a newly available live performance from the same year. Upon its original release, Danko/Fjeld/Andersen quietly won much acclaim, most notably the 1992 Spellemans Pris, which is Norway's version of a Grammy. All three artists trade singing and songwriting duties over the course of the album's 12 tracks, and the mood is often gentle, one of melancholy and reflection. Of the standout moments, Rick Danko's rendition of Eric Andersen's "Blue River" deserves recognition. The second disc of One More Shot features the trio's performance at the 1991 Molde International Jazz Festival, which took place shortly after Danko/Fjeld/Andersen recorded their album. During the course of the 16-song performance, each of the three artists gets some time in the solo spotlight, and the trio revisits songs from their respective pasts as well as a few songs from Danko/Fjeld/Andersen. A small backing band joins the trio for the performance, which sounds intimate and stripped down. Though Danko/Fjeld/Andersen has been readily available, this live performance has not, which makes One More Shot the preferred choice over the studio album on its own. Besides the great live performance, it also features remastered sound quality and liner notes by Robert Palmer.
