Life and Other Transient Storms

Susana Santos Silva  trumpet/flugel
Lotte Anker  tenor/sop Sax
Sten Sandell  piano
Torbjörn Zetterberg  double bass
Jon Fält  drums

In the last years Susana Santos Silva has been considered by the international press as one of the strongest emerging voices in contemporary jazz and improvised music. This incredibly versed trumpet player has developed a language of her own, as she has been interested in stretching the boundaries of the instrument and in exploring new ways of expression within music.
For Life and Other Transient Storms she invited Lotte Anker, Sten Sandell, Torbjörn Zetterberg and Jon Fält, each of them extraordinaire and unique musicians, that play with strong intent and urgency.
The music that comes out of this gathering is relentlessly energetic and explosive but also spacious and beautifully ethereal at times. The chemistry between the musicians tells the story. A story of Impermanence.
