”Larsson begins his solo by playing very lyrically and expressively before moving into a flurry of notes that span his entire range, a range that is quite impressive for a bass trombonist. From pedal notes to F5, and with superb flexibility, Larsson really gets around the horn throughout this CD.” Clarence Hines, ITA Journal Oct 2012 (review of “Tussilago”)
”Sven Larsson is a musical phenomenon. He is the bass trombonist who plays classical music as well as jazz, and who switches to tuba, tenor trombone, or digeridoo without missing a beat. As an invaluable member of the Swedish Radio Jazz Group, he has performed and recorded with international names such as George Russell, Thad Jones, and Carla Bley, as well as Swedish greats like Lars Gullin, Monika Zetterlund, and Lennart Åberg. He was also a member of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra for several years, still finding time to tour with giants such as Sammy Davis Jr., Lena Horne, and Bette Midler. ”Didgeribone” is Sven Larsson’s first recording under his own name, and here, he is assisted by himself. Period. He plays with and against himself, he uses his entire arsenal of instruments in different ways and combinations, and, last but not least, he creates great music, whether he takes on classics like ”I..m getting sentimental over you” and ”Mood Indigo” or performs his own songs. The result can be called world music as well as jazz, and it simply proves that truly good music doesn’t need to be put into genres.” Johan Scherwin, STIM
