Together as a band for some 10 years now the Lisa Bjorange Quintet have 3 albums to their credit. This top-notch quintet brings an invigorating purpose and vitality to their music with the group’s simple joy in making such fine music evident throughout their playing. Lisa Bjorange’s impressive vocal versatility plays a large role in their sound, with her convincing upper-register scatting and her creative phrasing together, with heartfelt treatments of songs through her wistful, dusky delivery. With strong melodic components and occasional inventive twists, Björänge’s songwriting is sophisticated and creative.
Credit should also go to other band members, whose chemistry is undeniable. Drummer Jon Fält, pianist Fabian Kallerdahl and bassist Pär-Ola Landin make one heck of a rhythm team, with razor-sharp grooves that ooze energy and tenacity. Tenor saxophonist Klas Toresson has an ongoing dialogue with Björänge’s vocals and is almost telepathic as he shadows, complements, and echoes her.
Line-up: Lisa Björänge – Voice, Jon Fält – Drums (Bobo Stenson trio), Fabian Kallerdahl – Piano (MusicMusicMusic), Pär-Ola Landin – Double Bass, Klas Toresson – Tenor Saxophone
