Fire (Mats Gustafsson)Defeat ... CD
Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2021. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the more intimate albums recorded under the Fire name – a set that features core work from the trio of Johan Berthling on electric bass, Andreas Wearlin on drums, and Mats Gustafsson on flute, baritone sax, and live electronics! The electric bass is key here, and often sets up a groove that holds things fast, even in the more freely improvised moments – and even when the trio is joined by Goran Kajfes on trumpet, and Mats Aleklint on trombone, the sound is still quite tight overall – but still mixed with the bolder expressions you'd expect from the players involved! At times, it almost feels like Mats is playing the changes – which is a real surprise – and titles include "Defeat", "A Random Belt Rats You Out", "Each Millimeter Of The Toad (parts 1 & 2)", and "Alien".

✨✧ Fire Orchestra (Mats Gustafsson)Exit ... LP
Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2013. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A really great album from Fire – a set that has the trio expanded way more than usual, into jazz orchestra form – and working here in a style that's wonderfully soulful and spiritual overall! The set isn't just a spiritual jazz outing – as it's got these really unique flavors and colors that still echo the intensity of the previous Fire trio outings, but which spread the energy out over the larger ensemble, then give it a lot more focus too – less improvisation, and instead some really visionary arrangements that make the whole thing shine brilliantly from start to finish. There's a bit of vocals, which are tremendous too – almost echoing some of the Fontella Bass work with the Art Ensemble Of Chicago, but darker too. Mats Gustafsson conducts the group – and really blows us away with his efforts – and the set features one long two part composition – with performances by Sten Sandell on piano and electronics, Mariam Wallentin and Sofia Jernberg on voice, Magnus Broo and Emil Strandberg on trumpet, Jonas Kullhammar on bass sax, Fredrik Ljungkvist on baritone and clarinet, and Mats himself on tenor and live electronics!

✨✧ Fire Orchestra (Mats Gustafsson)Actions ... CD
Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An expanded take on the original "Actions" composition – originally recorded by Don Cherry, with composer Krzystof Penderecki – and extended here by original material from reedman Mats Gustafsson! The original recording was a key juncture between two different avant worlds on the European scene – and this updated set is equally powerful – as it features an all-star group of younger improvisers – with Gustafsson on baritone and leading the group – in a lineup that includes Per Texas Johansson on tenor and flute, Christer Bothen on bass clarinet, Anna Hogberg on alto, Marial Berthel on trombone, Reine Fiske on guitar, Alex Zethson on Hammond organ, Torbjorn Zetterberg on electric bass, and Goran Kajfes, Niklas Barno, and Susansa Santos Silva on trumpets! The strong use of trumpets really echoes Cherry's legacy, but there's also a very different vibe to this take on Penderecki's mix of composition and improvisation – one that's maybe more careful, spacious, and thoughtful than the original - a great tribute not just to Gustafsson's legacy, but also the evolution of improvisation over the decades.

FJF (Vandermark, Gustafsson, Hunt, Kessler)Blow Horn ... CD
Okka Disk, 1997. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A stone classic from the explosive 90s years of the Chicago avant scene – and a record by a quartet that features fantastic interplay between reedmen Ken Vandermark and Mats Gustafsson! Mats was a growing frequent visitor to Chicago at the time of the recording, and he and Vandermark seem to set an instant fire together – really living up to the "blow horn" of the title, with Mats on tenor, baritone, and French flageolett, and Ken on tenor and bass clarinet! Other players in the group are drummer Steve Hunt and bassist Kent Kessler – both musicians who can rise and fall with the energetic needs of the reedmen – on titles that include "Carry Out", "Biomass", "Dedication", "Structure A La Malle", and "Blow Horn for Service".
