Scandinavia has been home to trailblazers in the world of jazz since the 1970s. Characterized by “stark” tones, allusions to natural sounds, and folk music influences, jazz with a “nordic sound” has a distinctive style. Union 32 vibist Brett Reed: “This music is hauntingly simple and beautiful, while also not being much like the American jazz we are accustomed to – it has now been a big influence on our other writing and arranging.”
Union 32: Keith Kelly - saxophone, flute; Brett Reed - vibes, percussion; Jeff Libman - guitar, Ben Hedquist - acoustic bass; Ryan Anthony - drums.
