One of our favorite jazz artists working today – heard here in an album that bristles with excitement and energy! Jonas Kullhammar could easily be called the new heir to classic sounds on the tenor sax – a player with as much promise as Eric Alexander at his start, but with an even more deeply creative sound. Kullhammar's playing encompasses tenor experimentation from Sonny Rollins on up through Mats Gustafsson and beyond – but is probably most like the former in that he mostly keeps things inside, and holds back the temptation to get too free – letting the boldness of his tone and ability for fast invention speak most strongly. The group is wonderfully matched to Kullhammar's energy – and includes Torbjorn Gulz on piano, Torbjorn Zetterberg on bass, and Jonas Holgersson on drums. Titles include "Hitman", "Stormen", "Bendiksen", "Corny Waltz", and "The Rise & Fall Of Sour T".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Lat Det Vara
Moserobie (Sweden), 2013. New Copy
An incredible step forward for reedman Jonas Kullhammar – an album that's put together as a summation of his feelings after taking a brief break from the recording business – but which also stands as one of his greatest moments to date! We've always loved Jonas' music, but there's a ... CD

Svenska Kaputt
Moserobie (Sweden), 2012. New Copy
Nothing's kaput here – certainly not the creativity of the players involved – as the album's easily one of the most beautiful, most evocative sets we've ever heard from reedman Jonas Kullhammar! The quartet session is definitely a group effort – as all players work together in ... CD

Moserobie (Sweden), 2010. New Copy
Brilliant work from a guy who gets our vote as one of the best young saxophone talents working today! Jonas Kullhammar's a hell of a great player – one who can be free one minute, focused the next – always working with a long-range creative vision in his solos – of the sort we ... CD

Zanussi Thirteen Live
Moserobie (Sweden), 2012. New Copy
One of the boldest records we've ever heard from bassist Per Zanussi – quite possibly because it features a thirteen-member ensemble – exploding out with a heck of a lot of power! Despite their size, though, the sound can be incredibly lean – at times because it seems like every ... CD

Swedish Wood
Moserobie (Sweden), 2010. New Copy
Swedish wood, with plenty of brass – thanks to bold, imaginative work as a leader from trumpeter Magnus Broo – easily one of the most important voices on his instrument working today! The group is a beautifully tight quartet – and Broo's trumpet gains plenty from the equally bold ... CD

Dick Wetmore
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), Mid 50s. New Copy
One of our favorite albums of violin jazz from the 50s – and one of the only sets we've seen from the obscure Dick Wetmore! Wetmore's got a tone that's a lot more sharp and a lot less sweet than some of his contemporaries – this kind of dark edge that's really unsettling at times, ... CD

Enja (Germany), 1977. New Copy
CD...$8.99 11.99
Sublime solo piano from Randy Weston – just the sort of record to remind us why his skills in such a setting can always be so great! The tunes are filled with energy and rhythm right from the start – spun out in those long African-inspired lines that Randy first forged in the 50s, but ... CD

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy
An early showcase for the cool, compressed flute work of the young Herbie Mann – a style that created a great bridge to jazz for so many later players on the instrument! The Mann heard here isn't the overblown, soul-drenched Herbie of the 60s – but a player who's very careful with his ... CD

East Coast Jazz
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. New Copy
One of the best records ever from guitarist Joe Puma – a player who offered his talents as a sideman on many great sessions of the 50s, but who really shines here as a leader on his own! Puma's got a clean, clear, careful touch on the strings – one that reminds us a lot of Tal Farlow ... CD

Jazz City Workshop
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy
An excellent swinging Bethlehem session from the mid 50s – one that's recorded in LA, but with a sound that's way hotter than most of the label's other west coast sides! The group's extremely tight – and features Marty Paich on piano as the leader, next to great trombone from Herbie ... CD

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954/1955. New Copy
Ruby Braff has a ball on this rare date for Bethlehem Records – a set that's got a live, loose feel that's quite different than some of Ruby's other records! The date was recorded on New Years Eve, at the end of 1954 – and it features Braff stepping out with these surprisingly human, ... CD
