Recent Listening: Bruno Råberg With Barth and Cruz

Bruno Råberg Trio, Tailwind (Red Piano Records) Råberg’s bass—at once relaxed and penetrating—is at the heart of a collection of his compositions. The sole piece written by someone else is Jimmy Van Heusen’s “Here’s That Rainy Day,” a feature for the leader’s seductive bowing. Råberg follows the Van Heusen with his own “Rainy Day Farewell,” which he ...

Bruno Raberg Trio: Tailwind

Read "Tailwind" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Tailwind is the tenth album as a leader for Swedish-born, longtime Boston-resident bassist/composer Bruno Råberg. His most recent groups have been piano-less: Hot Box (Orbis Music, 2015) was a quartet with trumpet, saxophone and drums; For The Unknown (Orbis Music, 2016) brought back the same group sans drums, and was entirely based on freely improvised music. ...

Bruno Raberg: Tailwind

Read "Tailwind" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

In a 2005 interview, double bassist Bruno Råberg discussed how Scandinavian music reflects the country's vast mountains and forests. “You can see very far and that calmness and meditative spirituality comes through," he says. Born in Sweden, but a longtime resident of Boston, you sense Råberg still carries his homeland close to the heart.

Bruno Råberg: Triloka: Music for Strings and Soloists

Read "Triloka: Music for Strings and Soloists" reviewed by Marithe Van der Aa

The number three has always had a symbolic and spiritual significance in many different religions and cultures--and, in his latest album Triloka (literally translated as 'Three Realms'), Swedish bassist Bruno Råberg pays his own personal homage to the trinity of...well, everything.

Inspired by South Indian carnatic music, the album immediately cuts to the chase ...

Sweden boasts a long tradition of producing notable double bassists--Georg Riedel, Palle Danielsson, Anders Jormin, Lars Danielsson, Dan Berglund and Petter Eldh all spring to mind.

Tarun Balani Collective: Dharma

Read "Dharma" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Drummer / composer Tarun Balani's previous album, Sacred World (Self Produced, 2013), offered audiences a fresh look at the synthesis and Indian music and jazz. On Dharma, Balani steps back a bit from the music of his homeland. The result is still an invigorating listen. Balani's composing here makes extensive use of hypnotic, propulsive ostinati. Conceptually, ...

Bruno Råberg/Phil Grenadier/Allan Chase: For The Unknown

Read "For The Unknown" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Bassist Bruno Raberg returns with three-quarters of the quartet from last year's acclaimed Hot Box (Orbis Music, 2015). This outing was based on free improvisations (with extensive electronic sound design by Råberg)--it could be seen as an extension of the two collective improvisations on the previous album. No drums this time, just trumpeter Phil Grenadier, saxophonist ...
