Vesper available!

In nine compositions by Gress, Olin and Frisk the four musicians play with unconditional sensibility seeking the soft poetry of Cradle Song as well as the roaring intensity of New Leaf. Blue to Pink allows for melodic beauty and Vesper hard swing, while Removal by Suction shows dark and secret undertones. The dynamic mix between Nilsson’s powerful drumming and Gress’ solid bass lays down a rhythmic foundation for Olin’s harmonic complexity and Frisk’s tenor saxophone.

The CD was recorded in December 2015 following a tour in Sweden. Vesper by expEAR and Drew Gress is released on November 15, 2017. It is released on the Swedish label Kopasetic Productions.

Press release for Vesper

upcoming project with drew gress

Thanks to support from Musikverket we are able to invite the fabulous bass player Drew Gress to participate in our ongoing exploration of what jazz is, what it can be and, most importantly, what it is for us.

We are currently booking concerts in Sweden but as usual, our fokus is on the process rather than the result. On finding out what Gress’ concept is and how we can learn from him while staying true to our own aesthetics.
