Anders Lønne Grønseth: Multiverse

Read "Multiverse" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Built and fully realized in its moment of fruition, Norwegian saxophonist and bass clarinetist Anders Lønne Grønseth's Multiverse lays waste to the tired notion that music from the Scandinavian hinterlands has to bear the mark of chilly emotion.

The musical flow and invention heard so immediately on Multiverse is a restless wonder, resulting in ...

The dignified portraits of John Scofield on the front and back covers of Combo 66 are at once in keeping with the reference to his age in the album's name and at odds with the youthful vigor he and his bandmates exhibit in playing the music inside this subtly eye-catching package of all new material.
