✨✧ Nacka Forum (Goran Kajfes & Jonas Kullhammar)Nacka Forum ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2002. Used ... $9.99
Wonderful proof that creative jazz is alive and well in Scandinavia – and a great little quartet that features saxophone from Moserobie groover Jonas Kullhammar and trumpet from Goran Kajfes of Oddjob! The album's got a highly rhythmic feel that reminds us both of the Oddjob albums and of Kullhammar's own proudly stepping records – a love of jazz that's never too academic, never too dry, and which is always colored by the beautifully simple interplay that can arise between two horns, bass, and drums. And there's also a combination of styles on the set that's at once freshly modern and personal, yet which also has a soul jazz sort of pulse – one that's often quite grooving at times, yet which pulls back for a spacier, more exploratory style at others. Titles include "We Travel The Spaceways", "Zlatan", "Law Years", "Backtalk", "Brickjuice", and "Sauerkraut Rock". CD

✨✧ Nacka Forum (Kajfes/Kullhammar/Berthling/Osgood)We Are The World ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A record that's got a lot more going on than you'd expect from the cat video innocence of its cover – hardly the kind of throwaway content you'd find online, and instead a rock-solid session of free jazz from this heavyweight Swedish group! The quartet boasts some of the fiercest trumpet we've ever heard from Goran Kajfes – who also plus cornet, percussion, and a slide trumpet too – alongside massive reeds from the mighty Jonas Kullhammar – who handles tenor, flute, and sopranino – plus wonderfully odd horns like slide saxophone, and George Braith's amazing Braithophone! Yet despite the unusual instruments, neither musician acts with the impulse of gimmick – and instead, the players hold onto a very firey spirit at the core – driven onward by the bass of Johan Berthling and drums of Kresten Osgood – who also plays a bit of piano – on these tracks that spin far out, but swing back strongly – always with a unified energy that's really wonderful – that special spark that first made us fall in love with the Moserobie label years ago. Titles include "Buss 414", "Do The Nacka Forum", "Chogolisa", "Thinking About JC", and "Magwaza". CD
