With the Jazz as a starting-point and inspiration Mattias Carlson Quartet creates new and unpredictable music. The sound is everything but conventional, the musicians are led on to new paths and through freedom of improvisation new musical worlds are created. The listener finds the entirety surprising, exciting and impossible to predict. Each musician contributes with his voice through the instrument. The result is a young fresh sound where the teamwork is an important link to high quality solistic performances. Mattias Carlson Quartet offers both selfproduced music and interpretations of other compositions. The material is shaped, characterized and worked out with the personal nature of the group. The quartet led by Mattias Carlson (who previously played with the Swedish guitarist Janne Schaffer) has worked together for two years. The 23.rd of february 2004 the record 'Presentation' was released.

There's not too much information on the label's website about who he is or where he come from. But one thing's for sure, this guy's got some chops! He sounds right out of the Charlie Parker School of saxophone playing. He's original as well! His compositions will be something you'll be talking about if you enjoy jazz with other fans. I enjoyed the variety of the track selections. 'Billy the Kid' and the Thelonious Monk's cover of 'Hornin' in' showcase his great range in sax playing. The track, 'The Most Beautiful Eyes' is haunting as well as it is soothing. His band gives great support on this recording. Krister Jonsson is outstanding on Guitar as are Mattias Hjort on upright Bass and Anton Jarl on Drums. Jazz purists will appreciate the great music on this CD. Check out this outstanding CD. ___.
