descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Jazz turns open and flexible again with this quartet. The music follows the historic grammars of bop and the "new thing", but from there grows a strong appetite for the future. Energy and form are the most important musical coordinates of the project Chant, and the sense of equilibrium with which the band articulates composed structures and improvisation, inspired by the Fifties and Sixties American jazz, and very specially by the Blue Note aesthetic, is very much in evidence. This particular association of musicians was proposed by Clean Feed's boss, Pedro Costa, and its first public presentation was a three day series of concerts in Coimbra, Portugal - all the pieces in this album were recorded live there. The musicians involved are some of the best coming from the Swedish scene. Born in Italy, but living in Stockholm, Alberto Pinton is undoubtedly one of the most important baritone saxophonists in the Old Continent. Continuing the steps of Sonny Rollins, Jonas Kullhammar plays the tenor sax with vigour, a round sound and an ever-ending imagination. The bassist Torbjorn Zetterberg may be Mingusian in style, but he has a very personal vision of the role filled by the double bass. Drummer Kjell Nordeson has many credentials as a free improviser, but he also knows how to swing. With a characteristic European elegancy and a truly American drive, Chant has the particularity of not confusing urgency with simplification. Each idea is explored to the limit and that explorative factor makes wonders."-Clean Feed


Artist Biographies:

"Alberto Pinton has been performing since the mid eighties as a bandleader and sideman, on all sizes of saxophones, clarinets and flutes, delivering solo and ensemble work on the jazz and improvised music scene.

His most recent group as a leader, a chordless quartet (two horns, bass and drums) named Alberto Pinton Noi Siamo, has released two live recordings of original compositions, "Resiliency" on Moserobie Music Production and "Opus Facere" on Clean Feed Records.Of the music on "Resiliency", critics write: "Pinton and Barnö unfurl extended improvisations with electric intensity, always plugged into the agile, shape-shifting rhythm section","Pinton definitely knows his "free" chops, but favors rationality over fervid incomprehensibility. Barnö, Zetterberg and Agnas enrich the interplay with respect and realism, constantly conscious of the overall intensity and velocity".

Alberto Pinton has released eleven albums as leader and co-leader. Previous recordings include work by the Alberto Pinton Quintet, Alberto Pinton Clear Now, Dog Out, Pinton Kullhammar Zetterberg Nordeson, Alberto Pinton Nascent.

Alberto has received two full scholarships, from the Berklee College of Music and the Manhattan School of Music. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Saxophone Performance at Berklee, Boston, and with a Master's Degree in Saxophone Performance at the Manhattan School, New York. During his four years stay in the USA, Alberto studied the saxophone with Hamiet Bluiett, Joe Temperley, George Garzone, Joe Viola, Dick Oatts, Gary Smulyan, Jerry Bergonzi. Theory and composition with Maria Schneider, Ludmila Ulehla and Nils Vigeland.

He's the recipient of the Swedish jazz award Jazzkannan (2009) and Bert Levins Stipendium (2014).

Alberto Pinton has toured and performed with, among many others, Kenny Wheeler, John Surman, John Warren, Bob Brookmeyer, Maria Schneider, Jerry Bergonzi, Lennart Åberg, Nils Landgren, Kenny Werner, Steve Grey, Norma Winstone, George Russell, Tim Hagans, Peter Erskine, Joe Lovano, Steve Swallow, Carla Bley, Adam Nussbaum, Swedish Radio Jazz Group, Stockholm Jazz Orchestra, Bohuslän Big Band, Norrbotten Big Band.

"Torbjörn Zetterberg (born 10 May 1976) is a Swedish jazz musician (double bass) and composer, known from collaborations with Jonas Kullhammar.

Zetterberg attended Södra Latin och Fridhems Folkhögskola in Svalöv but was first recognised as bassist when he studied at Kungliga Musikhögskolan in Stockholm still very young. Here he studied bass under guidance of Jan Adefelt. Soon he joined drummer Fredrik Norén's band together with the saxophonist Jonas Kullhammar. Already at this point one could sense that he would become a prominent figure in the Swedish jazz scene. Now his name is firmly rooted in the vibrant progressive selection as the new jazz generation.

He went through a personal crisis and did not record as a bandleader for more than seven years. Zetterberg was uncomfortable with his career and in 2010 he decided to leave the urban life including his bass, and moved to a Buddhist temple. There he resided for a year and still spends half of his time there in 2016. This existential crisis led to the production of the album Och Den Stora Frågan ("And the Big Question" in Swedish) in 2014. Here he collaborated with well known musicians from his earlier career, like the Portuguese trumpeter Susana Santos Silva and drummer Jon Fält, known from albums with pianist Bobo Stenson's trio. The album is "charged with joyful urgency, shiny optimism and confident flowing energy, despite the doubts and uncertainties that accompany any creative, artistic process", the reporter of All About Jazz stated in 2014."
