Isn't It Good - Swedish Wood

In honor of our Swedish friend and intrepid Bluesette crew member Martin we feature jazz musician Magnus Lindgren and the Magnus Lindgren Frya (Four). This multi-talented arranger, composer, and musician began playing with Herbie Hancock at the age of 18.   His collaboration with trombonist ;) Nils Landgren was called by Sweden's Orchestral Journal, “Sweden’s answer to Quincy Jones”.

High praise indeed. Judge for yourself with his rendition of Bluesette:

All I can say of the performance of this group is an approving "dang"!

Until next,  sweet sailing.

I had to look up "intrepid" in my dictionary :)

Martin - you're welcome and you have proved yourself to be most deserving of the description "intrepid".
