Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Three Swedish improvising musicians from different generations unite in the trio AAM. The result is a freewheeling, boundless yet highly dynamic music with a strong presence. Their debut album is released by Portuguese label Creative Sources.

Pianist Arne Forsén has the rare ability to move freely between stylistic genres. As a member of the jazz group Brus Trio he has recorded and toured with the likes of Roscoe Mitchell, John Tchicai and Charles Tyler. He has also collaborated with European free improvisers such as Phil Minton, Paul Lovens and Roger Turner, as well as with contemporary classical ensembles and composers. For many years he had a duo with Gambian kora master Alagi M ́Bye. In early 2019 Arne released an album of Swedish folk music, Visa från Dorotea, to glowing reviews in the Swedish music press.

Drummer Andreas Axelsson is a longtime member of pianist Lisa Ullén ́s critically acclaimed quartet and plays in a number of fixed and fluctuating constellations ranging from jazz and free improvised music to collaborations involving dance and electro-acoustic music. He has performed throughout Europe and Scandinavia and appears on 20 plus recordings released by labels in France, Germany, Norway, Japan, Denmark and his native Sweden.

"Mats Dimming is in demand as a bassist in a wide variety of musical settings, from straight ahead jazz with Swedish trumpet legend Jan Allan to free improvisation, experimental rock and Swedish folk music. As a member of the young free jazz trio APUH! he has released three albums and toured in Europe and the US. Mats has also released two very well received solo albums with improvisations for double bass."-AAM
