Footprint Records is proud to present Thomas Markusson Open, a jazz project emanating from sketches by Markusson and developed in a free form by him and his three brilliant musicians, served up in a live context on this exciting new release. Thomas Markusson (double bass) is a respected member of the jazz community who regularly graces stages throughout Europe and in Japan. He has toured with Lee Konitz, Chris Cheek, Daniel Fredar Trio, and many others. Thomas Markusson Open is, however, the first album with this stellar constellation.
The amazing Naoko Sakata brings her piano with great sensitivity and energy. This young musician has already made a substantial impression on the jazz world with her personal style. The same is true for drummer Cornelia Nilsson, representing a new generation of talented jazz musicians, highly appreciated by the Swedish press. A legend on the European jazz scene, Staffan Svensson doesn't really need a presentation, not after all those collaborations with groups such as Entra, Surge, and Oslo 13 along with 60 albums- what more can we say?
This album was recorded in the church Hagakyrkan in Gothenburg by the legendary sound engineer Ake Linton and mixed by Per Sjosten.
