This item is not available at this time.

Artist/Band:Jan Lundgren
Name:A Swinging Rendezvous
Cat No.:MMEX-114
Performed by:Jan Lundgren (piano)
Jesper Lundgaard (bass)
Alex Riel (drums)
Release Date:08/21/2007
Description:"Lundgren supports his improvisational wizardry with speed, precision, dynamic mastery and a sense of romance. He is a modern bebop pianist at the highest level. If you think that "modern" and "bebop" constitute an oxymoron, listen to Lundgren."
- Doug Ramsey

"This trio rendezvous achieves a truly rare command of material and self-expression: low-burning dynamic bravura perfected, explicit interactive delicacy, and magisterial musical discourse that make the ear more alert, more hungry and curious, with each hearing."
- Jim Merod (Positive Feedback Online)

The highly anticipated new Marshmallow release by Jan Lundgren is finally here, and it is an instant classic! With his formidable Scandinavian rhythm section (Jesper Lundgaard on bass and Alex Riel on drums), Lundgren chose to tackle a jazz composer's songbook.

With the sole exception of "Billy Boy," all tunes were composed by jazz greats such as Wynton Kelly, Mal Waldron, Oscar Pettiford, Thelonious Monk, Herbie Nichols, J.J. Johnson and Paul Chambers. The program takes you back to the golden age of modern jazz, but Lundgren's warm, beautiful touch and the trio's interactions make the music decisively their own.

Above all, the band swings hard with "in the pocket" cohesiveness. I firmly believe that this is one of the top 10 piano trios that exist today. I bet my bottom dollar that this swinging set will put a smile on your face. Very highly recommended!

Recorded in February 2007 at Sun Studio, Copenhagen, Denmark.
