About the album
Anders Jormin has been a vital contributor to music on ECM over the last fifteen years, a powerful presence on recordings by Charles Lloyd , Don Cherry, Bobo Stenson, Tomasz Stanko and Jon Balke. “In winds, in light” turns the spotlight on Jormin as composer-arranger. Written in response to a commission to compose new sacred music, and setting exceptional poetry for Lena Willemark to sing, the musical concept expanded as Anders' unique quintet toured it through Sweden. Subsequently, the album was recorded in the large and resonant Organ Hall of the Gothenburg Music Aademy.
