descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The Italian, but living in Sweden, saxophonist and clarinetist Alberto Pinton continues to explore the post-bop heritage of the Sixties with his new album, "Opus Facere", stretching it to include what is coming after free jazz in a non-conformist attitude. The name of his quartet, Noi Siamo (meaning We Are in English) has "This is Our Music" (because of the "This is" part), by Ornette Coleman, as a reference, but musically it brings us to another classic, Eric Dolphy's "Out to Lunch", and specially Pinton's combinations with trumpeter Niklas Barnoo (Fire! Orchestra, Je Suis - another allusion), modeled by the ones formed by the ongoing conversations between Dolphy and Freddie Hubbard. In Torbjorn Zetterberg and Konrad Agnas they have the ideal rhythm section to bring tradition to a sort of reinvention of the present. Through all this you have energetic solos and solid structures, everything you wish from an affirmative and audacious band committed to make jazz a music of fire andsoul, as the great mavericks wanted to once upon a time. Intense, agile, shape-shifting, full of drive and, yes, swing."-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.

His teaching experience, spanning over two decades, include classes of ear training, improvisation, ensemble and instrument lessons at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. Master classes in Sweden, Italy and Canada.

Born and raised on the "terraferma", the mainland, of Marghera, an industrial town outside of Venice, Italy, he currently lives in Stockholm, Sweden."

"Niklas Barnö

Probably the best trumpeter player from Sweden.

Best, just simply because he is the musician most far away from defining something with being best, or worse for that part.

Pure honesty, in its best way. Or worse way. As honest is neither good or bad.

Niklas is. And is becoming.

Niklas is human. This is heard in his playing; the haunting crescendo of thoughts, spanning over 50.000 years, blown out through the mouthpiece of his trumpet.

Why? What? Who? How? Now?

He is his own foghorn (Mistlur). Clearing out the dim and artificial with ignited instinct.

He is the leader of the herd of musicians, Je Suis!. And active in groups like Kege Snö, Snus, Se&Hör...

Niklas Barnö and Joel Grip has known each other since they learned how to crawl musically and have been crucial for the development of their music as heard playing together as well as in the music organized together; Umlaut Records Sweden and unique festival Hagenfesten in Dala-Floda."

"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."
