- thomas tidholm & jonas knutsson: orsa by night
(2015, cd, sweden, country & eastern ce35)
As far as I know (and I had to look it up), Orsa is a small town somewhere in the middle of Sweden.
Apparently, author / musician Thomas Tidholm and composer / musician Jonas Knutsson met at a musical course that was given by Jonas. The course was about the playing of folk tunes on wind instruments. Thomas was one of the participants.
"Orsa By Night" presents music by Jonas Knutsson as well as arrangements of traditional music from Orsa. Texts are by Thomas Tidholm.
The both of them (with Jonas Knutsson on saxophones, percussion and keyboards, and with Thomas Tidholm on clarinet and voice) take you on a mesmerizing musical journey.
