Import CD – FYR 005 – Goodbye Everytime – Open Trio

Temporarily out of stock/back-order

Modern Swedish jazz made by musicians knowing the pop-scene of today as much as the jazztradition. This is jazz, but most of all music; lyrical, beautiful and swinging. Pianist Joakim Simonsson and his trio have worked together for over 6 years and finally their second album is here. Goodbye Everytime is, according to composer/bandleader/pianist Simonsson, an album inspired by different goodbyes in life; to people and places, and about how some goodbyes, ironically, seems to be repeated. OT’s music gets it’s special colour from Swedish folk music and hymns, both a strong influence on the group’s main composer Joakim Simonsson. He describes the outcome as some kind of “melancholy free jazz with a touch of folk music – always with a groove.” Free improvisation has with time also grown to be an important part of OT’s music. Often a song is no more than a simple melody, like a hymn, open to be explored and developed anew each time it’s played.
