Brooklyn playground - Fred's not playing around though.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brooklyn Playground (Audio CD)
Bought this one expecting to here Fredrik tearing up every tune in sight with his fleet fingered style. What you actually get though is some superb tunes, wonderful harmonies and more feeling from Kronkvist than I thought him capable. As an improviser he is not up there with the best but he plays with more spirit and heart than many of today's up and coming musicians. I guess you could put this in the contemporary Bop category as most of the tunes have a modern feel although there is an excellent version of Ellington's caravan.
An excellent rhythm section and superb sound quality make this one of the early picks of 2014.
