Album Notes
..all are unified by a crispness and intimacy that highlights Janzon’s cool, subtle style.
- Forrest Dylan Bryant, JazzTimes magazine, March 2007.

With a program of 10 new and original compositions, guitarist Tomas Janzon turns up the flame of jazz’s modern mainstream through his latest album of adventurous music. Featuring his L.A. band as well as groups in New York and Stockholm, he romps through an affair that pushes the guitar in a vibrant direction. On a Wes Montgomery-inspired number, he swings happily in a grove collective that holds true to form. Like Montgomery, the guitarist attains a fluid texture that settles in comfortably with attention-grabbing results.

While Janzon’s lyrical guitar remains the album’s focus, his three bands add variety. With bassist Ken Filiano and drummer Ben Dixon in New York, we get a combination of the raw urban scene and the heartfelt soul behind it, as Janzon’s guitar tells stories that linger. In Sweden with Birger Thorelli on marimba, Lars Ekman on bass and Ali Djeridi on drums, the guitarist explores a laid back approach that agrees with his velvet melodies. In L.A. with pianist William Henderson, bassist Jeff Littleton and drummer Tony Austin, Janzon reaches out for new and different ways to improvise on a theme. Each of the double bassists contributes a pure sound on these sessions, while Janzon’s drummers shade eloquently. His guitar expresses with a vocal-like lyricism that weaves through the album like golden threads. Whether in Los Angeles, New York or Stockholm, Janzon continues to provide a new and creative voice on the horizon for today’s generation of jazz lovers.

..impress you with their low key
precision and clever use of
space and tone.
...should excite listeners
from coast to coast to coast.
-George Harris,
All About Jazz LA, Dec 2006.

For some of the tastiest guitar playing this side of the Midnight Sun. /Paul Andersen - Entertainment Today

Janzon's fretwork remains surprisingly agile and crisp.
/Derek Taylor - Cadence Magazine

His recordings offer proof that the guitarist’s swinging jazz style comes straight from the heart. /Jim Santella - All About Jazz
