Import CD – FYR 030 – Viva Black – Filip Augustson

What do you get when you cross the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra with the Fredrik Norén Band, Anna Von Hauswolff, Drottningholms Barockensemble, Mats Öberg Trio and Rikard Wolff?

I sometimes get the feeling that when you work in projects combining Jazz and Classical music the real meeting “in-­‐between” never comes to be; you either get the Jazz group's rendition of a Classical Music, or vice versa, Classical musicians' interpretation of Jazz. The actual meeting and a blending of these Genres somehow rarely comes to fruition. Something new. Under the leadership of the by now highly merited and highly routined bass player Filip Augustson, the group Viva Black has been called to life and a very poignant example of the aformentioned dilemma.

Found You Recordings proudly presents this new ensemble and CD, which gives room to so much fantastic musicianship in such a small and intimate constellation with such depth and diversity.
