Live I Tensta (Artogrush)
This unique constellation features the meeting of two trios: One jazz, one Arabic, and the end result was LOVE! On this first cd, recorded live in Tensta, a suburb outside Stockholm, you hear this tremendous double trio burn together, and create movements in music. The songs goes from traditional Arabic folksongs, Bulgarian ratjenitsa, to freejazz and gospel. The closing number is a meeting between the jazztrio and three young rapping girls from Tensta, making a jazz-hiphop improvisation in the true spirit of Ornette Coleman.
