Perssons Sexa is a group based in Malmö, Sweden, playing original compositions by Jens Persson. The band consists of young and already well merited musicians that really are coming up in the jazz world.
The members are or have been involved in projects with musicians and groups like: Tolvan Big Band, Marius Neset, Malene Mortensen, Andrew D'Angelo, Makross, Hurricane Love and many more.
The music is very personal and inviting with space for both improvisation and composition, and it's framed by a interesting and wide group sound.
Persson Sexa is one of the best debut records I have heard in a while. If a band already at the first attempt may produce music that is as open and simultaneously integrated as the groups, and so boldly confident in both its responsiveness and its originality, they can accomplish practically anything in the future. That's a future I long for.
