descriptions, reviews, &c.

"When the music we call jazz continues to reveal a number of new values with the surprising qualities of Chris Pitsiokos, Susana Santos Silva and Torbjorn Zetterberg, you have the final confirmation: this musical genre is in very good health these present days. And when musicians like the ones reunited in Child of Illusion distinguish themselves on the scene, you can only hope to find them in the same band.

Here it is, for our common pleasure entirely. Pitsiokos, a New Yorker who is filling a new page of the book telling the history of the alto saxophone in jazz, justifies his fame as a super skilled player who is expanding the technical and lexical possibilities of his instrument, either with his own projects or in association with the greatest, from Tyshawn Sorey and Peter Evans to Lydia Lunch and Otomo Yoshihide.

Silva, a Portuguese now living in Stockholm, has a warm and acid trumpet sound which quickly positioned her in the Olympus of this music, in the company of mavericks of older generations like Fred Frith, Joe Morris, Mats Gustafsson, Joelle Leandre and Mat Maneri.

Zetterberg, one of the top double bassists in Sweden, turned to be an international reference, due to his work as the leader of Hot Five or in the company of like-minded musicians who are making a difference, from Jonas Kullhamar and Alberto Pinton to Mats Aleklint and Jon Falt. If you don't know them yet, this is a magnificent opportunity for an update."-Clean Feed


Artist Biographies:

"Chris Pitsiokos (b. 1990) is a saxophonist, composer, and improviser. His music combines the intensity and immediacy of extreme rock forms and noise with the lyricism and forward propulsion of jazz and the abstract detail of contemporary classical composers Iannis Xenakis and Helmut Lachenmann. Chris has had the opportunity to perform/collaborate with Lydia Lunch, Tyshawn Sorey, Peter Evans, Kevin Shea, Brian Chase, Henry Kaiser, Mick Barr, Marc Edwards, Brandon Seabrook, Paul Lytton, Tim Dahl, Philip White, Guerilla Toss, C. Spencer Yeh, Ikue Mori, Nate Wooley and Weasel Walter. Chris has performed throughout Europe, Japan, Australia, and the US. His records can be found on Clean Feed, New Atlantis, One Hand Records, Carrier Records, Ug Explode, and his own imprint, Eleatic Records. In addition to performing and composing music, Chris was a long time DJ at WKCR-FM and has been producing concerts in Brooklyn and Manhattan for four years."

"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."
