FOUR MUSICIANS CREATE A FANTASY ANIMAL
- AND GET LOST IN TRANSLATION
Here’s To Us is a new dream team of a quartet from Stockholm, Gothenburg and Porto. An optimistic celebration to the community and the collective.
Josef Kallerdahl, double bass, Lisen Rylander Löve, tenor saxophone, Susana Santos Silva, trumpet and Nils Berg, bass clarinet and are all well known among Swedish and European jazz fans. With groups and artists like FIRE! Orchestra, Nils Berg Cinemascope, MUSICMUSICMUSIC, The Splendor and Lina Nyberg they have toured on all continents and played the biggest festivals. Now they have created their own fantasy animal, a joint project where all and noone gets the lasty word.
WHAT IS THE SOUND OF TIME?
The song titles refer to the chapter names of the English language textbook used by the Swedish immigrants on their way over the Atlantic in the 1850’s, as told by Wilhelm Moberg in his novel ”the Immigrants”. All the words needed, sorted into eight chapters: Mankind, Abilities of the Mind, Abilities of the Soul, Time, Nature and the World, Plants and Flowers, Metals and Stones & Animals, Wild and Tame. This is the phrasebook for a new continent of sounds.
So, now we let go of this tiger with salamander feet and see where it goes. Four points of view that creates ONE fantasy.
