Fredrick Nordstrom's 60s inspired jazz places itself in the Ornette Coleman heritage, with references also to Blue Note artists like Bobby Hutcherson.

Nordstrom, Fredrik: Live in Coimbra (Clean Feed)
Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"Inspired in the American jazz of the Sixties, but with a North European perspective of inquestionable modernity, Fredrik Nordström imposed himself already as one of the most powerful and intriguing saxophonists in the tenor variant coming from the Old Continent. His prestige as a performer is extensive to the compositional work he's developing, such is the richness of ideas in terms of harmony and rhythm presented by his quintet. With trombonist Mats Äleklint replacing Magnus Broo and his trumpet and Torbjörn Zetterberg ocupying the position of the double bass instead of Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, but keeping Mattias Ståhl-vibraphone) and Fredrik Rundqvist-drums) at their posts, this live CD recorded in Coimbra, Portugal, presents a renewed band with the same objectives defined since the beginning: elasticity of style and afirmative drive. Adding a new voice to the lineage of tenors with robust sound, it's nevertheless in the Ornette Coleman heritage that we can place Nordström. And that even if "Live in Coimbra" has more connections with the Blue Note catalogue and the Bobby Hutcherson groups in the golden period of this master vibraphonist than with the harmolodic concepts. The album includes two pieces never recorded before, "Yakiniku" and "Mister Barista", and a version of a song by none other than the pop singer Björk, "Cocoon", and it's a blast, showing this project in the ideal of contexts when the music in question is jazz: a concert.
