descriptions, reviews, &c.

"If someone told you that jazz wasn't invented in America, you would say they were crazy. Insane. Next thing they might submit is that Christopher Columbus didn't discover the New World. Oops, okay discounting the Native Americans already here, there's that Scandinavian guy Leif Ericson that came through the East Village about 500 years before Chris.

That's why you might avoid any musical debate over the finest tenor saxophonists working in jazz today. When fans declare the Swedes, Mats Gustafsson the best free jazz and Jonas Kullhammar the best post-bop tenors, don't take the bait. You might just loose your shirt.

Kullhammar's Quartet of Torbjörn Gulz (piano), Torbjörn Zetterberg (bass), and Jonas Holgersson (drums), together since 1998 is releasing their final recordings with a 10" LP covering "A Love Supreme" (already sold out), a soon to be released cover album of Swedish jazz songs, and Låt Det Vara or "Let It Be." The cover photo, a spoof on The Beatles cover of the same name, signals the same message as Paul, John, George, and Ringo is their good-bye.

The quartet plays six tracks, then is joined by a sextet for the title track. Opening with a gong and overblown horns, "Låt Det Vara" romps through a folky up-tempo piece that is life affirming and includes the saxophonist's father on drums.

Elsewhere there is the irrepressible sound the band has been known for since 1998. Part John Coltrane Quartet and part Von Freeman Chicago sound, the quartet can maneuver through muscular post-bop material like "Allting Kan Gå Itu," a piece that threatens to come apart at its edges, but thankfully for the blues, never does. Both Kullhammar and Gulz unleash their inner 'out' music. They also work a bit of John Klemmer (or was that Jan Garbarek?) into the meditative piece "Domedagen." The noteworthiness of the working quartet is their ability to scorch through a tune such as "KBT" or "Födelsedagen" with all the passion of a firebrand, but never have their music skid off the runway."-Mark Corroto

Artist Biographies:

"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."
