Swedish azz consists of five European improvisers loving the Swedish jazz masterpieces from the 50´s and 60´s, which where influenced by the cool West Coast jazz. Using turntables, electronics and furious saxophones, the band puts the music in contemporary structures and (noise) soundscapes.
"Fascinating and highly unusual evening of not-quite-free jazz. It could have ended up as a right old mess, but in the event it was a thoroughly convincing performance"
