Harmonic and dissonant. Melodic and dynamic. Explosive and playful. Fanny Gunnarsson Quartet allows the components to be reflected in each other and creates music that touches while making it difficult to sit still. Sometimes the songs have lyrics, sometimes the music speaks for itself. Soprano saxophone and piano intertwine in strong melodies that drive forward or rest calmly on top of bass and drums. The result is something completely new and unique, delivered with great joy in playing and feeling for the music.
” This is new, innovative and creative jazz of a high class that in its own way continues to walk in a rich tradition.”
Sune Johannesson – Kristianstadsbladet
All music and lyrics are written by the pianist and singer Fanny Gunnarsson. Upcoming release is the fourth album “Night of Stars”, which will be released on April 14, 2023.
