Kullhammar / Aalberg / Zetterberg
Basement Sessions Vol. 2
Label: Clean Feed
Released in: Portugal
"Second chapter of the Basement legendary sessions by the trio of saxophone ace Jonas Kullhammar, bass wizard Torbjörn Zetterberg and master drummer Espen Aalberg. Old fashioned sound exploring the natural dynamics of the instruments in a way surprisingly no one does anymore. This shouldn't be mistaken with old fashioned music , this time playing mostly Mr. Aalberg's compositions plus one rendition of Bent Rosengren tune, "Gluck".
The trio moves in classic territory as form and sound is concerned, this is a saxophone trio without a question, but behind it one can hear that this music couldn't be played in the fifities or sixties as the three players bring their updated background both in composition and playing. No one here can be mistaken for their elder influences even if you can also find them here. Once more hard bop is taken out of the museum in a way you can barely listen to these days. Autheticity remains one of the strongest point on this informal session where jazz is played in a trully (a)live set."-Clean Feed
