FREDRIK LJUNGKVIST & YUN KAN 5: Badaling
Caprice, 2007

SWEDISH AVANT JAZZ - Saxophonist/clarinetist with a friendly, non-threatening avant-garde sound that takes off from small, deliberately-phrased themes. Tight chamber-jazz quintet includes tuba for interesting flavor; piano (Klas Nevrin) and drums (Jon Fält) really stand out. Highly enjoyable stuff.

All good. Fo's Picks: 1, 3, 5, 6

1. 07:36 - tense: scattered piano, twisty sax, avant tuba; awesome drums
2. 03:37 - gentle, off-kilter tune; tuba, sax, piano take turns out front
3. 07:01 - solo sax intro; upbeat, methodical theme leads to speedy solos
4. 05:33 - oblique intro, slow walk w/clarinet, turns very quiet & abstract
5. 04:46 - piano clusters over clattering sounds, becomes a curious creep
6. 06:38 - a relaxed stroll: frizzy piano solo, excellent drums, quiet breaks
7. 11:35 - moaning intro, quiet wanderings over steady beat; bright but spare middle builds up to brisk bounce, second half swings

[Fo] – 4/20/08
