Bobo Stenson: A Discography

Budd Kopman By

Sign in to view read count
The twenty-three minute piece has a ten minute symphonic section, after which the quartet makes its entrance, and from then on the two groups interact. The purely orchestral music can be quite beautiful, sounding vaguely of Sibelius, but definitely Nordic. The jazz improvisations are solid and Farnlof gets a gorgeous flugelhorn sound. This is very early Stenson, but the basics of his style are audible.
