Ällmänhetens Åkning
# FYR040LP

For six years, the trio Allm¨nhetens Åkning has regularly met up at drummer Raymond Strid's house in Heby. Intensive meetings and many sweaty hours in Strid's basement lay the foundation to what we now hear on the debut album ”Första” (en. First).

Over the years, different bases for improvisation, along with compositions by sax player Niklas Bogren Persson, have been explored. Bass player Patric Thorman has worked with both Raymond and Niklas in various constellations before, and he brought this trio together. Also musically, Thorman has a prominent role and binds Raymond and Niklas together as a musical force.

The group's artistic process is characterized by conversation, listening, and a music-making where openness and honesty, together with the will of finding something real, have made a distinct trio sound grow. A sound marked by free jazz, open ears and "jävlar anamma".

Niklas Bogren Persson - alto & sopranino saxophone
