Klas Toresson - Fundamentals

Klas Toresson's third album under his own name, Fundamentals, is a bit of a tribute to the rootsy, blues influenced, groovy jazz of players such as Geogre Coleman, Clifford Jordan and Stanley Turrentine and contains a mix of original tunes and jazz standards. To realize that vision, Toresson gathered an absolutely perfect band, consisting of some of Sweden's greatest musicians in the tradition we're talking about.

Mainland Jazz Collective - Slobodan's Puzzle

"On this, their third full length album, Mainland Jazz Collective have found new, personal approaches to songs who are creeping towards their hundredth birthday, and have used their deep knowledge of the living tradition of jazz to craft vibrant new originals, culminating in a hard-bop-laced musical journey seen through the eyes of six of Sweden’s most exciting musical talents. ‘Slobodan’s Puzzle’ is a meeting of tradition with creative innovation, weaving the two together to make a bold, assertive statement about where Swedish jazz sits in 2022." - Pete Fraser

Hannes Junestav Quartet & Håkan Broström - Reassembled

Swedish trombone player Hannes Junestav releases his debut album featuring his quartet along with Swedish legendary saxophone player Håkan Broström! The album consists of music composed and arranged by Junestav over the last couple of years, with a special, very exciting, twist. Junestav has developed an original harmonic system, which is exqusitely arranged into the songs. This approach to the music definitely reminds of the way John Coltrane played jazz and popular songs with his quartet in the beginning of the 60's. Håkan Broström is one of the most distinguished musicians in Sweden in Afro-American music and the result of the meeting between Broström, the quartet and the music is truly a masterpiece - Reassembled!

Erik Tengholm Quintet - Stories From the Club

Erik Tengholm released his debut album, Stories From the Club, on November 18! The album features Erik Tengholm Quintet, one of the hottest jazz quintets you will find in Sweden, and consists of five original compositions by Erik and three of his favorite tunes by other composers. Erik says about the album:

"One of the best feelings is exactly in the moment when you enter a jazzclub. It is such a special vibe in there and you feel the warmth, excitement and some butterflies in your stomach because you know that you’re in for something special. I think this record has some of that vibe to it. The songs are played only from lead sheets, no arrangements, and with plenty of space for the musicians to direct the music. Everything is recorded in the same room with no headphones and basically nothing is added or edited after, which gives the session this raw, liveish character. Imagine stepping into the club, relishing the music and talking to the people. I hope you’ll enjoy it, Stories From the Club!"

Mimmi and the Original Blue - "excuse me, but this is my place!"

This is the debute album from this super popular swing dance band. On this album, you'll find a variety of moods and styles, all of a similar nature to the music of the small jazz- blues- and swing bands of the late 1930's and the early 1940's. The idea of the album is to capture the voicing of the past and to pay tribute to the great musicians and composers who were pioneers in this field of art, but also to offer something new and unique. The album includes 16 tunes - some classics, some rare ones and some original music and lyrics by the members of the band.
