This is my first CD out in my own name, recorded in 98. It was reviewed very nicely in many, many countries and got me started in a good way. It’s got some interesting pieces and intense playing on all hands. There’s a nice dense and sort of complex feeling to it that I am proud of today, and its done a lot for my music and whatever has happened since. The players are Henrik Frisk on sax and bass clarinet, Henrik has played and recorded with Gary Thomas, Richie Beirach a.o. Maggi Olin plays Rhodes and piano, one of Sweden’s most important pianist/bandleaders/composers, has played much with Ingrid Jensen etc. PA Tollbom on drums, played with Ulf Wakenius, Rich Perry.
Gary Thomas joined the band for some concerts in Denmark and Sweden and there are some downloadable live tracks from that. There are lead sheets of some of the pieces and discussion on compositional and improvisational issues on the music.
On the road trivia and live concert outtakes with new as well as recorded original music from around the world
