Magnus Lindgren ‘Batucada Jazz’

Past Dates

Q: What do Brazil and Sweden have in common? A: Saxophonist Magnus Lindgren. Not only did he record his current album Batucada Jazz in Rio and Stockholm, he also successfully creates a melange of tropical and boreal sounds. His recipe: fire and ice.

Across the Atlantic and the equator, Lindgren has succeeded in establishing a band that is above all distinguished by a common language. His experiences alongside artists as diverse as Herbie Hancock, James Ingram, Bob Mintzer, Nils Landgren and Wilton Felder as well as the pop-group Koop were overly helpful in doing so. This snappy mix of samba and hardbop is the bright antithesis to the long, nordic winter.
