Lars Danielsson…this man is a genius. Listen…..
Swedish Bassist Lars Danielsson here at the Jazz Baltica 2010. This man’s music is special. So beautiful, so visual, so much space here to interact with the music. The band is wonderful. I had the great pleasure of playing with drummer Magnus Öström last year when I was in Stockholm. I was playing with the great tenor saxophonist Lennart Åberg, and Magnus was playing drums. Magnus was a force and had a pocket as wide as a Vermont barn! So hip!! Magnus was also the drummer in E.S.T., the amazing trio with the late, great pianist Esbjörn Svensson, and supreme bassist Dan Berglund. I hope you enjoy this wonderful Scandinavian music….
