All Included: Satan in Plain Clothes [VINYL] (Clean Feed)

Label: Clean Feed    
Released in: Portugal    

"The Scandinavian contributions for the present status of that music called jazz are no longer possible to dismiss. And a fundamental one is given by the quintet All Included.

At its axis is the rock solid rhythm duet formed by double bassist Jon Rune Strom and drummer Tollef Ostvang, the same of bands like Friends and Neighbors and Universal Indians. That duo is a tension builder, capable of maintaining an obsessive groove or to explore the limits of the lowest sound world, the other keeps things close to the roots, but with a rare sense of surprise - his procedures can be conventional, but they appear when you least expect.

On the top are three sometimes angry, sometimes lyrical, horns played by Martin Kuchen, Thomas Johansson and Mats Aleklint - three of a kind, seeming an entire orchestral blowing section with its unisons, counterpoints and crossed challenges.

Kuchen is all emotions, but with a brain In the core of his heart, capable of the most complex phrasing work with extended techniques.

With his vocabulary emerging from the hard bop and the free traditions, Johansson makes old ideas entirely new.

Aleklint can be open- minded to the extreme, but even in abstract contexts he swings like if his life depended on it.

Remember the Blue Note records from the Fifties and Sixties? "Satan in Plain Clothes" is the next step..."-Clean Feed
