descriptions, reviews, &c.

"I've heard only a few new groups with this extremely generous, humble, and still very defined group activity. A group identity!

It's so much about listening. To give each other the necessary space to invite one another into the creative process, but never with hesitation, just with love and respect for the music and each other. The trio throws itself in between abstract minimal improvisation, hard bop phrasing, free jazz clusters of poetic beauty, and great use of angular short figures and patterns to make the music move and deepen (... and it SWINGS!)."-Mats Gustafsson, from the liner notes

"Moving from Norway to Sweden, here is trio with Sebastian Bergström on piano, Joachim Nyberg on bass, and Emil Åstrand-Melin on drums. The eleven tracks were recorded live on two sessions in April 2009, hence the not-so-creative title. The music is creative by contrast, but uses all the jazz ingredients, from bop to more free and minimalist influences, mixing it all together in a great stew full of unexpected flavors and texture. As Mats Gustafsson keeps repeating in the liner notes : these guys listen to each other, which allows them to shift and change things in a whim, understand where the other ones are going, and join telepathically. The musicians keep the pieces relatively short, which is a good idea, because the compactness leads to focus leads to intensity leads to a story to tell. In this way they don't overplay their hand, and demonstrate through the quantity of the pieces what they have in store. And that's a lot."-Stef, FreeJazzStef
