Mats Gustafsson / Johan Berling / David Stackenäs / Magnus Broo - Boots Brown

A Swedish quartet formed by a reedist (Mats Gustafsson), a trumpeter (Magnus Broo), David Stackenäs on guitar and Johan Bertling on bass.
Their debut album is a blend of free improvisation and experimental jazz (perhaps with a prevalence of this last aptitude).
"Boots Brown" leaves a sensation of a substantial uniformity, despite the presence of recurring changes of phase; the sound transmits a concrete melancholy and appears surrounded by a clouded light.
A work of rare intimacy.
