You have heard them a thousand times. You recognize them every time. Even so, the tunes sound fresh every time a good artist sink their teeth into the material, to present it in their own unique way. Jazz Standards are no mere chartbusters, they are musical diamonds and a priceless materieal to improvise on.

The somewhat prosaic term ”standards” doesn't sound very creative, but who cares. Here comes eleven highly respected Jazz Standards in as many cool special arrangements, presented by Lasse Lindgren in three different Constellations: BIG CONSTELLATIONS, HIP BOP CONSTELLATION and QUARTET CONSTELLATION.

Explosive, poetic. Beautiful and wild in an original mix offering an unusual variation for the active record listener. You have never heard them like this before.

A tour de force - a self-evident acquisition…. … It's fresh, brazen, beautiful, witty” Johnny Olsson NWT
