New Release 28th of may - Hans Backenroth Q "Parker's Mood" (Prophone/Naxos)

Last year Charlie Parker would have turned 100 years old but it also was 70 years since he did a tour of Sweden together with my former mentor and bandleader - legendary altosaxophone-player Arne Domnérus. The tour of Sweden was Parker's only tour outside of US and he often referred to it as the "best week in his whole life". This CD is a tribute to both of these things - 12 songs composed or associated with the great Charlie Parker. You can buy the CD at amazon, Ginza  - or send me a mail!

Hans Backenroth: bass // Klas Lindquist: altosaxophone, clarinet // Erik Söderlind: guitar // Karl-Henrik Ousbäck: drums
