Mats Gustafsson / Bengt [2012]

Bengt is the new solo recording by Mats Gustafsson and is dedicated to Bengt Nordström. Mats Gustafsson plays a plastic alto sax. A classic Grafton sax. The type of sax that was used by Charlie Parker, Ornette Coleman and Bengt Nordström. Nordström is best known having produced Albert Ayler´s first recording Something Different!!!!!! on his Bird Note imprint. It is in his own role as a sax player Bengt was truly inventive. Bengt was playing solo sax improvisation already in 1962 (!!!) Nordström mentored Swedish reedman Mats Gustafsson in addition to playing in a quartet with drummer Peter Uuskyla, bassist Bjorn Ålke, and violinist Lars Svantesson. Nordström died in 2000 at age 63. Bengt is a celebration of the music and the man behind it.

From the liner notes by Swedish author Thomas Millroth- On this record you might not hear the Gustafsson you are used to, but I assure you this is the real Mats, this is the nucleus in his playing. These solo pieces are a wholeness, together forming a sounding essay about the Me in his music. The Me in Me that is Me in You – as did Ekelöf write in a poem.

Limited to 500 copies on white vinyl. LP includes cd version of the album.

    The Cherry Thing is the result of her collaboration with Norwegian/Swedish jazz trio the Thing, known for their punkish live performances: frontman and saxophonist Mats Gustafsson regularly sprays the front row of his audience with spit. To those who only remember Cherry at the height of her fame (she had four top 10 hits, including No 1 charity single Love Can Build a Bridge , with Cher and Chrissie Hynde), it sounds like a bizarre union. But once you delve into Cherry’s background, it begins to make sense.
