Son Of A Drummer

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

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.

Stellar stellar set by this great vibes player! Recorded with the same high quality as all the Ubiquity releases, and a loving tribute to a great player who hasn't had his due in many many years. At first, we thought "big deal, another Dave Pike record. It's new, and it's probably a lot ... CD
