CD Review: Fredrik Lundin - 5 Go Adventuring Again.

Fredrik Lundin (tenor, Mezzo Soprano, baritone saxophones; Tomasz Dabrowski (trumpet); Petter Hangsel (trombone, sylo synth); Joel Illerberg (bazantar); Anders Provis (drums, spds drumpads); Jesper Lovdal (contrabass clarinet on first track).
(Review by Lance).
A thought-provoking album that, although quite deep at times, is never boring. Far from it! Outstanding Danish saxophonist and composer Lundin has a prodigious technique that varies from that of a bull in a china shop to that of a lamb grazing in the meadow. Both are equally compelling.
There are some strange instruments that I'm unable to identify accurately. They don't do any harm and help create the somewhat disturbing mood that, at times, surfaces. There's also an eastern feel to it - perhaps the mezzo-soprano saxophone?
An imaginative album that can't be judged on a single listening. Without a doubt, it grows on you not least because of Dabrowski's trumpet playing - it's wild, listen to Jumping Jack if you get the chance. Or grab an earful of Hangsel's trombone on Being in a Dark Place.
If a picture paints a thousand words then take a good look at the cover artwork and you will get the idea. Definitely,
one to listen to with the lights on.
The Hound of the Baskervilles; Crumbling Castles; Wondering; Dodging Bullets; The Pond; Borderland; Jumping Jack; Tilbage Til Start; Being in a Dark Place; Prairie Dreams.
Lance.
Distributed by Discovery and released on the Stunt label on CD, Vinyl or digital on March 9.
