In The City (Artogrush)
The second album from Örjan Hultén Trio, released in the fall 2008 is a tribute to the city. It also marks a change in the constellation's musical pulse. The recordings are taken from two live-sessions at the Glenn Miller Café in Stockholm during 2007. During the time they were mixing the album, a group of new songs were added. ”When we added these new songs to the live recordings we found that the combination gave the album a sort of romantic city feeling, and as a wink to our last album ”In the Woods” we thought we'd call this album ”In the City”', says Örjan. In addition to their own music there is also a Coltrane classic and a standard on the album. Örjan continues: ”With the standards it feels like we have a nice thread to pick up for our next album.” But for now we get to enjoy the trio with their feet firmly planted in the city.
