The Splendor (SE)

In response to the performances of the Swedish improvisational quartet, we can get to know a cute genre pigeonhole of a “wild-jazz”. It is not exaggerated and it does not lie at all: the charismatic Lisen Rylander Löve alternating saxophones and bass clarinet creates along with her three mates a magical, spiritual and innovative mix of jazz, which sometimes sounds wildly out of control. The established name of the Scandinavian scene (debuted in 2008) has the power to draw the listener into his own universe with its tantalizing combination of acoustic jazz with spontaneous electronics. They already toured in Europe and the North America. Not surprisingly, the band was honored with several awards, all members also operate in other formations and their portfolio includes collaborations with many stellar musicians.
