Son Of A Drummer

CD (Item 412701) Moserobie (Sweden), 2006 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.80 5

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.

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

Enja (Germany), 1977. New Copy
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
Sounds By Socolow
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy
A real lost gem on Bethlehem Records – and one of the few albums to feature this tremendous saxophonist in the lead! Frank Socolow was one of the great unsung reed players of the 50s – and although he lay hidden in some of the larger combos of the early part of the decade, he ... CD
