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."

"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.

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.

"Jon Fält (born 28 August 1979 in Gävle, Sweden) is a Swedish drummer in modern jazz.

Fält was raised in Sandviken and had first music lessons with Stefan Bergkvist at the Kulturskolan. From 1990 he played in the Sandvik Small Band at the school with which he first recorded in 1994. He attended the Jazzgymnasium in Gävle and the Kungliga Musikhögskolan in Stockholm. In the following years he worked with Alberto Pinton, Bobo Stenson (to be heard on his ECM albums Cantando, 2007 and Indicum, 2011), with Lina Nyberg (Tellus, 2006) and Jon Vanderlander, in the ensemble The Stoner led by the saxophonist Nils Berg, further in the bands The Deciders, Splint!, Yun Kan 5 (with Fredrik Ljungkvist) and in Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. In 2007, Fält received the Alice Babs Jazzstipend. He was involved in 20 jazz recording sessions between 1994 and 2012, including with Palle Danielsson, Fredrick Nordstrom and Anders Jormin. In a review on Nordic Music on the Jormin album Ad Lucem states: "Jon Fält is not a drummer in the traditional sense, he creates sounds and fills, creates space by not playing, grooving but still - factually cool, of course."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"If you've missed out on bassist Torbjörn Zetterberg, now's your chance to play some catch up ball. He's one of creative music's most eloquent exponents, having emerged from the fertile Swedish jazz scene a little over 15 years ago. With his band Torbjörn Zetterberg Hot Five, he began a fruitful relationship with the thoroughly excellent Moserobie label, run by his frequent band mate, saxophonist Jonas Kullhammar, and by the time he was making records like Skildrar Kvinnans Kamp and Och Den Stora Frågen, we were completely hooked.

Zetterberg is a Mingus for our times. He's a composer of unusual means - great sense for how to harmonize his inventive melodies; how to make a sextet sound like a big band and how to clear space for an unaccompanied solo; his slightly devious sense of humor underlying all the drive and swing that make the best in a bass player; and best of all a respect for his musicians, who have always found ways to push his great compositions up a notch. T

his luminous set of tracks was recorded in performance at Stockholm's famed Jazzclub Fasching. It presents a newly named ensemble, Torbjörn Zetterberg & The Great Question, with Kullhammar and Alberto Pinton on saxophones and clarinets, Portuguese trumpeter Susana Santos Silva, trombonist Mats Äleklint, and drummer Jon Fält.

With the exception of the opening passage, which adapts the traditional "Cherry Tree Carol," all compositions are by Zetterberg, and they make a solid case for him as a jazz writer to be taken seriously. Joyful, powerful, irreverent, and utterly fearless, The Great Question presents its case, answers the initial query, and asks more probing ones. Lustrous gatefold package features artwork by Karl Wirsum, one of the original Hairy Who painters of Chicago fame, and a portrait of Zetterberg by photographer Peter Gannushkin."-Corbett vs. Dempsey
