Album Description

For Fredrik Lundin, the mission has always been about telling stories. What captures him is the emotional impact of music, and he has just written a slew of new material with a voice that embraces 50 years of inspiration, from James Blake to Jon Balke, from Bela Bartok to T-Bone Burnett, and from Paul Bley to Leadbelly. He creates an almost cinematic universe that forges poignant images on the listener’s inner canvas - from drum’n’bass to free-form jazz, from dark Nordic jazz ballads to light and lyrical Americana. All gathered in a powerful and refined musical landscape that demonstrates the whole of of Lundin’s emotional expression palate, from sharp lyricism to frantic expressionism. Once again, Fredrik exhibits his great skills as a composer and band leader, presented on an album with many nuances and deep layers, but also not without humour. With FIVE GO ADVENTURING AGAIN, Lundin returns to the format with which he successfully debuted on the Scandinavian jazz scene in the mid-eighties: drums, bass, and horns. A special format, because without the presence of a traditional chordal instrument, it appears openly and intermittently bare in its expression, while giving Lundin the optimal opportunity to present its dense, colourful music, using all the available acoustic accoutrement, including brass with mutes, his own 3 saxophones, the bazantar bass, bells and percussion, and much more. It is the ideal setting for Fredrik Lundin as both a composer and the powerful soloist he has always been.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
