Second album of the Anna Högberg Attack, Lena is a must have free jazz album, recorded in Stockholm, Sweden (Atlantis Studio) the 16 and 17 December 2019.
“Pappa Kom Hem“, opening the album, might be a good summary of what we get with Lena:
- raw free jazz poignant as a scream;
- togetherness independently (if that makes sense);
- kind of sorrowful music, yet groovy as hell
Sometimes all at once, sometimes not, but for every second of the album, a real pleasure. The 6 musicians are working so well together, and the sound is perfect.
After listening to Lena, it simply lets you with the feeling the album is evidently good – and without any sufficiency – like in evidently necessary in your record collection.
Anyway, if not convinced yet, let’s Mats Gustafsson do it. You can read his review here.
