Magnus BrooRules ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2018. New Copy ... $18.99
Quite an unusual record from trumpeter Magnus Broo – a set that him handling a number of jazz standards – which is a real change from the more experimental sounds we've always heard from his own pen! And yet, amidst the current Scandia scene, Broo's always had a depth of tone that's really classic – and his approach here is wonderful, as he doesn't just echo familiar modes with the songs, but instead uses them as these compelling showcases for his unusual phrasing – his very particular way with the mouthpiece, which gets plenty of room in the spotlight – thanks to a trio setting that features the great Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass and Hakon Mjaset Johanson on drums. If you're just expecting a set of ballads and easygoing jazz, then think again – as Magnus creates a wealth of surprises here – on titles that include "You've Changed", "Summertime", "Easy Living", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Don't Explain", and "Like Someone In Love".

Adam Forkelid/Georg Riedel/Jon FaltReminiscence ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2018. New Copy ... $11.99
This might be the first we're ever hearing from pianist Adam Forkelid – and given the sound of the album, we hope we'll be hearing a lot more for years to come! Forkelid has this wonderful approach to the piano – very bold, powerful chords – even in the mellower moments – almost as if he's got these giant hands that can easily encompass the keyboard, and bring forth whatever warm sounds he likes – often with a blocky vibe that almost feels as if he was trained on Fender Rhodes, then moved to the acoustic piano! The group's also got superb work on bass from Georg Reidel – whose sound is as deep as Forkelid's – and drums by Jon Falt. All tunes are originals by the pianist – and tracks include "Cadence", "Play Theme", "New Beginning", "Round Montecristo", and "Reminiscence". CD

Johan GradenOlagenheter (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Moserobie (Sweden), 2018. Sealed Gatefold ... $14.99
A fantastic debut album from pianist Johan Graden – stepping out here as a leader, at the beginning of what should be a fantastic career for years to come! Graden's both a composer and piano player, and he's working here with a style that's right up there with the best of the modern jazz giants from Scandinavia – particularly during that 60s period before things got too free, but when they'd moved quite far from more familiar roots in American jazz! The songforms here are beautiful – very haunting, but never too wispy – often elliptical, but with more than enough meat in the middle to keep things exciting – and often quite swinging, but in a very offbeat way. Graden plays piano, and the rest of the group features Per Texas Johansson on clarinet, bass clarinet, and flute – with Par Ola Landin on bass, Korand Agnas on drums, and Josefin Runsteen on violin. Titles include "Odromt", "Ummah", "Fidelix", "Sagen", "Bas Plessis", and "Ship Of Fools". LP, Vinyl record album

Per Texas Johansson/Torbjorn Zetterberg/Konrad AgnasOrakel ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2019. New Copy ... $18.99
A beautiful little record – of the sort it feels like the Moserobie label was created to record – jazz that's not totally free or improvised, but which is also doing way more than conventional swing as well – served up by a trio with a perfect sense of creative cohesion! The tunes build in very different ways – sometimes with a slight groove, sometimes more complexity – but never too arch for their own good. Per Texas Johansson is fantastic on both tenor and clarinet – and the always-fantastic work on bass of Torbjorn Zetterberg is completely sublime, and the core element that really holds the whole thing together. (Heck, he's such a hell of a bassist, we're not sure why he's not one of the most recognized musicians on the instrument in the world!) Drums are by Konrad Agnas – who has this loose sense of pulse that really matches the energy of the other players – and titles include "Jankai", "Torbjorn Monk", "Vinteride", "Oraklet Pa Ringvagen", "Blodspredikan", and "Insikt Och Utlopp".

Jonas Kullhammar/Kresten Osgood/Ole Morten VaganAndratx ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2007. Used ... $16.99
Genius work from one of the greatest young tenorists in many years – Sweden's Jonas Kullhammar, heard here with his Andratx trio – a group based on tenor, bass, and drums – all with a fluidly creative sound that takes us back to Sonny Rollins at the Village Vanguard in the late 50s! Jonas has a bold, strong voice on his instrument – one that's bracingly inventive, but always inside, on the money, and swinging – a rare balance of freedom and jazz focus that never lets up through the course of the album. Other trio members include Kresten Osgood on drums and Ole Morten Vagen on bass – both players who provide far more than just rhythmic support – but who also know how to swing nicely as well! Titles include "Salut", "Kifi", "Black Benny", "Settled In The Saddle", "Kid Dynamite", "Ida Lupino", "Days & Nights Waiting", and "Ebony Queen". CD

Fredrik LjungkvistAtlantis ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2019. New Copy ... $18.99
Very deft reed work from Fredrik Ljungvkist – heard here mostly in a trio, with a style that has him turning all these sharp corners along with the rhythms! Fredrik plays saxes and clarinet, always with a style that's deeply soulful and never too coldly modern – and which seems to come from tenor mostly, set up alongside the bass of Mattias Welin and drums of Jon Falt – both players who seem to absorb the inherent rhythm in the reeds of Ljungkvist, then amplify it back, and give the leader a strong direction forward! Most tracks are trio numbers – but the set features three guest appearances, each on a track – Max Agnas on piano, Sofia Jernberg on voice, and Goran Strandberg on piano. Titles include "Very Early", "Atlantis", "So Do So Do Re", "Rue Oberkampf", "Monk's Dream", and "Flykt". CD

Milder/Ljungkvist/Landaeus/Augustson/RundqvistMusic Of Anders Garstedt (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2018. New Copy ... $18.99
A beautiful tribute to the too-short career of Swedish trumpeter Anders Garstedt – a musician who never achieved the global fame he deserved, but who really left his mark upon a recent generation of Scandinavian musicians! This set is served up by some of that generation – a lineup that includes Fredrik Ljungkvist on tenor and soprano sax, Joakim Milder on tenor, Mathias Landaes on piano, Filip Auguston on bass, and Fredrik Rundqvist on drums – all performing original compositions by Anders that shimmer with beauty and imagination! The intertwining of horns is especially nice, especially in the slower progression of moments – and there's a strength to Garstedt's writing that makes us hope there's more gems like these in his songbook. Titles include "Ades Gased", "Gone For Good", "C", "#27 1/2", "Waltz #2", and "F Minor". CD

✨✧ Gilbert HolmstromKonfrontation – Unreleased 1968 (180 gram gold vinyl) ... LP
Moserobie (Sweden), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Never-issued work by 60s Swedish modern jazz legend Gilbert Holmstrom – one of the most freely improvising musicians on his scene at the time! The set brings together two long selections recorded in 1968 – even more far-reaching material than Gilbert's famous Quintet album a few years before – and Gilbert blows tenor and flute in a large group that has this way of swinging effortlessly between cohesion and individual explosions of sound – a bit like some of Clifford Thornton's work at times, with a starkly revolutionary sound that's quite impressive, even given the long legacy of Swedish modern jazz in the years before. Other players include Enar Jonsson and Lars Lofstedt on trumpets, Pider Avall and Stig Ekelof on trombones, Jan Forslund on baritone, Clas Fehling on piano, Claes Wallin on bass, and Anders Soderling on drums – and both selections appear here in bold, brilliant mono.

✨✧ Per Texas JohanssonStrak Pa Himlen Och Stora Hus ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An insanely wonderful step forward for reedman Per Texas Johansson – a musician that we've loved on other records from the Moserobie label, but who's never sounded this fantastic before! Johansson's still got a strong focus on his reedwork and soundshapes – but the style of the group is also very different, with Mattias Stahl on vibes and Marimba, Konrag Agnas on drums and tympani, Josefin Runsteen on violin, and Margaret Bengtsson on harp – an instrumental lineup that really creates a new, very fresh setting for the leader's lines on tenor, flute, bass clarinet, clarinet, and oboe! Most songs have a modal sort of vibe – almost spiritual, but maybe slightly more modern in conception – yet never in a way that's cold or academic, as the record is easily the most personal, most moving work we've heard from Johansson to date. Both the rhythms and sonic conception of the record are fantastic – and titles include "Lethe", "Allt Var Som Vanlight", "Jalusi", "Blues I Dis", "Borja Om Igen", "En Klunga Bildas", and "Siffro Och Tecken".

✨✧ KullruskKullrusk (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Moserobie (Sweden), 2005. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The sound of the Varitone lives again – in this super-groovy set from Swedish saxophonists Jonas Kullhammar and Per Rusktrask Johansson! Both players on the set are clearly inspired by the Varitone years of Eddie Harris – and the album's got a sense of space, sound, and soul that easily batches some of Harris' best work on Atlantic from the early 70s. Instrumentation includes heavy bass and snapping drums next to Kullhammar's amplified tenor and Johansson's amplified alto sax – and the sound is spacey one minute, funky the next, and soaring after that – extremely creative, but also never forgetting to groove! Titles include "Alice The Babs", "Fanfar", "Farmen", "Randy (The Band)", "Missionaren", "Kalimero", and "Ove 2004". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stahls Trio (Mattias Stahl)Kallthorp Sessions Vol 1 ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from one of the hippest vibists working on the planet today – the great Mattias Stahl, one of the few players to really bring something new to the instrument over the past few decades! Stahls has this very rich sound, but also a very unique sense of timing too – which means that he can ring out with notes that are very seductive, while also pulling you into a space that's very much his own – fresh rhythms, different progressions, and moments of mindblowing intensity – all given fantastic support here by bassist Joe Williamson and drummer Christopher Cantillo! The group are as revolutionary as any of the Bobby Hutcherson "new thing" recordings of the 60s, or as Gary Burton's key combos at their best – and there's a sense of new imagination that matches that of the contemporary, but very different, vibist Jason Adasiewicz – maybe the only other player besides Stahl who's done so much with the instrument in recent years. Titles include "Vi Gar Till Skolan", "Morgon Pa Torpet", "Elmers", "Diagram", "Lennart Jernestrand", "Ordning Pa Torpet", and a surprising take on John Lennon's "Jealous Guy". CD

✨✧ Torbjorn ZetterbergOch Den Stora Fragan ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bold, beautiful work from one of our favorite contemporary bassists – a player with a great ear for his own instrument, and for its larger place in music as well! Torbjorn Zetterburg really hits things hard with this great set – writing, arranging, and producing a set of material that effortlessly mixes jagged edges, warm tones, and modern phrasing – all handled very deftly by a group that includes the great Jonas Kullhammar on tenor, baritone, and flute – plus Alberto Pinton on baritone and flute, Mts Aleklint on trombone, Susana Santos Silva on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Jon Falt on drums. At times, the music swings hard with a Mingus-like blend of bassy bottom and freewheeling solos – but at other points, the mode shifts into more textural, tonal explorations – carefully planned to further the energy and feeling of the more swinging moments. The result is the most compelling album from Zetterburg to date – a set that includes the tracks "Hyllning Till Ovissheten", "Visa Fran Mitten Av Universum", "Ingen Tid Till Ingenting", "Do Dodo Do Do Do", and "En Bra Start Pa Dagen".

✨✧ Torbjorn Zetterberg & Den Stora FragenOm Liv & Dod ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bassist Torbjorn Zetterberg may well be one of our favorite contemporary talents on his instrument – able to play with a depth of soul when he wants, but break out into much more modern ideas as well – adding key energy to any smaller group he joins, but even more tremendous as a leader on records like this! In some way, Zetterberg may be the Charles Mingus of the 21st Century – leading with a very dynamic approach that allows plenty of bold improvisation from the musicians in his group, but always bringing a strong focus to the sound that never fails to delight – as new ideas explode from the efforts of the group, while its individual members express themselves freely. And while we've always loved Torbjorn's records, this one may well blow all the others away for its freshness and vitality – clearly the work of the leader, but also equally shared by the lineup that includes Susansa Santos Silva on trumpet, Mats Aleklint on trombone, Alberto Pinton on baritone and flute, Jon Falt on drums, and the mighty Jonas Kullhammar on tenor, flute, and Braithophone. Titles include "Vad Ar Det Som Dor", "Innan & Efter", "Springa Runt I Hjul", "Saker Overallt", "Sakra Tvivel", and "Knut Utan Slut". CD

✨✧ Hakon Mjaset Johansen QuartetLive At Kongsberg Jazz Festival (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Moserobie (Sweden), 2014. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A majestic meeting of musicians we never would have imagined in a million years – one that has the piano of Chick Corea coming into play with Moserobie musicians Jonas Kullhamar on tenor and Ingebrigt Haker Flaten – all working under the leadership of drummer Hakon Mjaset Johansen! If all those names don't mean anything to you, don't worry – because the record has a voice that speaks loudly on its own – and the main thing you need to know is that Corea's hardly recorded like this in decades – in this open, swinging acoustic mode that has his piano coming into contact with one of the greatest tenor saxophonists on the planet – as Kullhamar's got this free-flowing sense of imagination that seems to set Chick on fire too – and we can bet that Corea's never had a bassist like Ingebrigt in any of his groups before. Titles include long takes on Corea classics "La Fiesta" and " Sundance" – plus a version of Wayne Shorter's "Nefertiti", and the tune "Mama's Lullaby". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Angles 3Parede ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An album recorded in Portugal – as you might guess from the title – but featuring a group of real Swedish music heavyweights! The trio features fantastic interplay between the bass of Ingebrigt Haker Flaten, the drums of Kjell Nordeson, and the tenor and soprano sax of Martin Kuchen – the latter of whom wrote most of the music, with a vivid style that's extremely compelling – as rich in fresh ideas as the musicians are free in their interpretation! Kuchen is amazing – really wonderful on both tenor and soprano – and the music here has maybe a looser approach to the sorts of sounds that the Moserobie label first gave us in its early years – with this great interplay between structure and freedom. Titles include "Equality & Death", "Satan In Plain Clothes", "Francisco/By Way Of Deception", and "Don't Ruin Me/Love Flee Thy House". CD
