Kvintetten Som Sprängdes
Faller På Eget grepp
# FYR037LP

Ten years have passed since Gothenburg based saxophonist Niklas Bogren Persson - together with trombone player Kristoffer Alehed, pianist Rasmus Borg, bass player Patric Thorman and drummer Martin Öhman - formed the group Kvintetten Som Sprängdes (Eng. The Quintet that blew up). Now as they are releasing their third album Faller På Eget Grepp (Eng. Falls on its own grip), the road seems to have come to its end. The quintet says goodbye with the flag at the summit. We hear a matured interplay, collectively improvised around Niklas Bogren Persson’s compositions, with an expression that is recognizable, but at the same time feels pleasantly intriguing and strange to the ear. The new material stirs and shakes into life the energy that so strongly characterizes the group. It’s like everyone finally found their role and place in the band. And this…is were it all ends. The new music is heard here for a first and final time. Farewell.

Niklas Persson - alto & sopranino saxophone
Christoffer Alehed - trombone
Rasmus Borg - piano
Patric Thorman - double bass
