The Ägg: The Ägg

Read "The Ägg" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Put three electric guitarists, three electric bassists and four drummers in one room all coming from the vibrant Stockholm scene of free improvisation, free jazz and art rock. Let them jam freely, lock in hypnotic grooves that loosely sound like Fela Kuti's Afro-beat bands or worse, like North Korean marching bands on acid, sketch noisy textures ...

Read "Insult" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The sophomore release of the Norwegian-American free improvisation quartet VCDC (following the self-titled album, Hispid, 2011) features the quartet as a highly inventive and playful unit.

Emil Strandberg: Works

Read "Works" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Works is the first album containing compositions by Swedish trumpeter Emil Strandberg. But this is also a highly collaborative work. The set of subtle and nuanced compositions for a chamber, acoustic trio stress an intimate dialog between the three musicians. The musical expression is equal to sensitive listening and always examines its own formulation, its sound, ...

Emil Strandberg / Sten Sandell / Patric Thorman: It Is Night And I Am Lost

Read "It Is Night And I Am Lost" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The Swedish improvising trio of trumpeter Emil Strandberg, pianist Sten Sandell and bassist Patric Thorman has played together since 2006. Its first recording, Stockholm Sweden Polyphony (Found You Recording, 2009), signaled the many directions that these experienced and resourceful improvisers were beginning to explore. The trio kept performing while Strandberg and Thorman also collaborated with American ...

Read "Fredrik Ljungkvist / Yun Kan 10: Ten" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Acclaimed Swedish reed player Fredrik Ljungkvist's key solo outfit is the Yun Kan band. This band, in its incarnation as a quintet, released two remarkable albums, Yun Kan 12345 and Badaling (Caprice, 2004 and 2007) and in recent years operated in a slimmed down version as Yun Kan 3 and as an ambitious outgrowth of the ...

Seval: 2

Read "2" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

The second release of the Swedish-American quintet Seval is as surprising as its debut, I Know You (482 Music, 2011). The eight songs, all penned by American cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, are still framed within a lyrical, acoustic- chamber setting. But now the quintet sounds as a working band comprised of equal partners, benefiting from few years ...
