About Rekons new release Rekon:

”Good God, what a beautiful recording this is. The trio of bass clarinetist Daniel Borgegård Älgå (who doubles on flute), guitarist Leif Jordansson, and drummer Pelle Vallgren cast bright melodies like sunlight across haunting sonic landscapes. There’s an undercurrent of tension throughout— an effect that is just as likely to evoke anxiousness as it might a comforting assurance. A mix of Euro jazz and Swedish folk influences combine for an intoxicating blend of expressions. This is the soundtrack for the changing of seasons from summer to autumn.”

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
