Product Notes

The lineup of the Swedish quartet Double Standards is: Cennet Jönsson soprano & tenor saxophone Jacob Karlzon piano Hans Andersson double bass Peter Nilsson drums Review quotes: 'On the band's third album we find extended (10-17 mins) and creative interpretations of six jazz classics, all recorded live. The group, with the marvellous pianist Jacob Karlzon, bassist Hans Andersson and drummer Peter Nilsson, stray away from the sentimentality of Strayhorn, Porter and Gershwin, instead they cultivate a different approach and come up with unexpected results. A highlight is Kurt Weill´s Speak Low, which is restricted only in the number of notes, not in emotions. I´ve never heard Cennet play better tenor than this, and the piano playing is just as great.' - Martin Erlandsson/Hallands Nyheter 'This group, fronted by saxophonist Cennet Jönsson and pianist Jacob Karlzon, is rightfully established as one of Sweden's finest interpreters ofstandards. With intensity, intelligence and love, the quartet takes matters in to their own hands in Speak Low, My Man's Gone Now, Tea For Two and other goodies. This is real jazz, and in this case, it actually feels like jazz music was just born...' - Ulf Johansson/Göteborgs-Posten 'This Swedish quartet manages to reach a level of intensity, especially in the rhythmically emphasised pieces like Upper Manhattan Medical Group and I Love You, that we´re not used to hear from our own Danish groups. This is mainly thanks to Karlzon and Nilsson. Karlzon with an at times almost overwhelming output, that never goes out of control and Nilsson, who plays with a sparkling explosiveness, but never loses his impeccable timing. Karlzon also knows how to express himself with nuanced restriction, something that can be heard in the gorgeously beautiful version of Tea For Two, here - surprisingly - performed as a rubato ballad.' - Boris Rabinowitsch/Politiken 'Among other songs, this album contains Wayne Shorter´s Mahjong in a smokingly trashy version and a truly gentle and dream-like interpretation of Tea For Two. The quartet's virtuosic, personal and unpredictable way of approaching standards is some of the most interesting music on the Swedish jazz scene.' - Alexander Agrell/Sydsvenskan.
