malin wättring 4

Malin Wättring - tenor & soprano saxophone
Naoko Sakata - piano
Donovan von Martens - double bass
Anna Lund - drums

Malin Wättring 4's music has the roots in the Nordic jazz but it has no limits to where it can go. The music is timeless and free from locked and solid forms. The group works intuitively with combining written material with free improvisation. MW4 is functioning as a democracy and there
are lots of room for the four musicians to express themselves. The sound is sometimes fragile, sometimes powerful, sometimes challenging, sometimes beautiful. The band always interprets the burning present.

The band has played togheter sience 2012 and released their debut album Glöd (Havtorn Records) in April 2015.

Anna Högberg Attack! plays raw and suggestive music based on compositions written by Anna Högberg (Pombo // Fire! Orchestra // Se & hör // winner of Jazzkatten-årets nykomling of the Year 2013). She brings five strong musicians with unique voices togheter to a group  which sound both caresses and river. The expression and freedom is the most important and there's alot of space for the musicians to bloom, each one individually and in the collective. Anna Högberg Attack! are wild horses that can not be contained. The band had its world premiere in connection with the Stockholm Jazz Festival 2013. 

Album release, spring 2015.
