Richard Andersson feat George Garzone, Jerry Bergonzi and Rakalam Bob Moses
Richard Andersson says "Working with American artists is such a privilege. I 'm highly inspired by the american musicians. Both geographically, historically and even emotionally, they are so much closer to the jazz tradition and its peculiar beating heart. Even though I mainly work with musicians who challenge and expand the boundaries of jazz, I feel that the awe and admiration for their predecessors is always present in the music. My contribution to the music arises out of the old European music tradition and my beloved danish folksongs."
The American jazz tradition, and the distinct lyrical and embracing northern European style, witch is often referred to as the Scandinavian sound", is a combination that has prooved its magic worth time and time again. As Andersson unites with a selection of todays most significant artists of the Boston Jazz Scene for this show at LilyPad, the basis for the magic to occur is absolutely present.
