Nordstrom, Fredrik Quartet: Blue (Moserobie Music)
Label: Moserobie Music    
Released in: Sweden    


"Swedish saxophonist Fredrik Nordström has been a player garnering much attention over the last few years. As his discography reaches double digits, his sound has consolidated and concentrated into a recognizable tenor approach. Blue is his fifth disc for Moserobie Music and first recording with piano legend Bobo Stenson.

All the compositions heard here were written by Nordström, but he gives deference to his playing partners and to other jazz legends. The opening track begins in a typically plaintive Stenson style, the pianist touches the keys with a reflective immediacy that draws the listener to adopt his timbre right away. Nordström's saxophone falls into line, but then, nearly seven minutes into the track the two musicians change direction lifting up the tempo and spirit of the piece, which reveals another side of Stenson's playing and the possibilities of this quartet.

This 'two sides of the same coin' approach is used throughout the recording. The restlessness of great jazz musicians is one explanation. Another may be Nordström's writing is for group interaction, one that requires dedicated attention and subtly. He favors strict attention in his playing too. [...]

In all contexts, Nordström's saxophone playing impresses. He can phrase his thoughts quietly and with great aplomb. That confidence is best displayed on "Late Sunday Flight Home," with his solo opening that gives way to a post bop workout. Even though it is the shortest track on the disc (4:32), it might be the best way to sum up this recording. The band simply gels in support of first Nordström's tenor, then his soprano saxophone. Together, they make a very joyful noise."-Mark Corroto, All About Jazz
