|The sixth release from Johan Berke Upstairs Five is for the major part a live album recorded at Glenn Miller Café in Stockholm June 13 & 14 2012.|
It contains mostly new compositions by Berke but also a couple of older live favorites: Two in One and The Big Krumbukto, which has been released earlier in studio versions.
The current line-up is premiered on this recording and contains powerhouse trombone-player Mats Äleklint for the first time in Upstairs Five. Saxophone-player Fredrik Nordström is back after a break but the rhythm-section is still consisting of the ever evolving tandem of Filip Augustson & Fredrik Rundqvist.
Stylistically it’s what you’ve come to expect from a Johan Berke-album;
Fredrik Nordström - tenor and alto saxophone
