Mats Gustafsson // Torden Kvartetten
FREE JAZZ – FREE THE JAZZ – THE FREE IS JAZZ
Extreme flow and energy – melodic passages – noisy interruptions and interplay on all levels. 4 routined Scandinavian improvisers meet again. TORDEN Kvartetten! A real audio explosion of seldom heard intensity. “Aflyst Tidsfördriv” – will be heard again. This is for real. Take no prisoners! With even more intensity! This is music with extreme energy – but yet with a poetic quality in the details. A state of mind. Low end turmoil and brutal points of departure. Baritone sax and tuba intensity interacting with electric bass and drum frenzy!
The Swedes. The Danes. Miles away from smörrebröd vs surströmming, mikkeler vs high coast distillery & cross country skiing vs bicycling! Or perhaps that is what it is all about?
In either way – the music will tell!
