Order CD

Jormin, hailed by Down Beat as "a treasure ­ everything a bassist should be", has excelled on numerous ECM recordings with Bobo Stenson, Charles Lloyd, Don Cherry, and Tomasz Stanko. Solo pieces and compositions for brass quartet feature on"Xieyi", his first album under his own name for the label. The songs for bass mine the widest possible sources: Scandinavian religious hymns by Sibelius and Söderblom, Ornette Coleman's "War Orphans","Gracias a la vida" by Chile's Violetta Parra, tone poems by Swedish composers, a children's song, and improvisations by Anders.
