For its great comeback since the death of its leader, the former rhythmic Esbjorn Svensson trio meets the pioneer of Nu Jazz, Bugge Wesseltoft.
Far from a predictable Scandinavian jazz, the three strong personalities who compose Rymden (Espace in Swedish) offer a dynamic music with strong melodies. At the piano, the multi-faceted Norwegian musician Bugge Wesseltoft rubs shoulders with the Swedish rhythm composed of Magnus Ostrom and Dan Berglund to take you into new musical territories.
A new Scandinavian formation to discover urgently.

This London quartet is the nude jazz revelation of 2018.
He composes lively, colourful music of diverse influences, drawing on the cultural mix of the English cosmopolitan capital and all the musical styles found there. A subtle blend of spiritual jazz, improvised music, afro beat, ethio jazz and groove. No planning, of the present moment and the crude, the throbbing and hypnotic swirling untiringly towards a explosion of bubbling
musical flavours. Their record sales are exploding on the bandcamp online listening and sales platform and their first pressings are already reselling for old on the net. A group to consider urgently !
