About the album
Jesper Løvdal is back with his second album this spring, and this time he is releasing an album made in close collaboration with the legendary German jazz drummer Günter Baby Sommer.
Jesper Løvdal has a long music career behind him where he has been involved in many different music projects, most recently with the release of Lovedale’s third studio album Green Sounds. He is a highly appraised jazz musician with a special focus on musical improvisation and he operates various wind instruments.
German Günter Baby Sommer is one of the masterminds of contemporary European jazz music. He is an excellent drummer and over one hundred albums is the result of his long professional career.
This album contains eleven magnificent tracks, which all hold an extreme energy that makes it perfectly clear to the listener what these two creative minds can produce with their instruments. The rough combination of Jesper Løvdal’s strong saxophone and Günter Baby Sommer’s drumming creates a noteworthy sound that not only brings you to different musical mind stages, but also challenges the way music is normally absorbed.
With this album a strong duo has come to life and the mix of jazz, avantgarde and musical improvisation makes this album a breath of fresh air in every dusty record collection.
