Correction with Mats Gustafsson, Shift

We are lucky that there is no shortage of excellent avant jazz out there today, all over the world, those of us who follow and appreciate the global new. I have another for you this morning. It's Correction with Mats Gustafsson and their limited-edition LP Shift (No Business NBLP 59).

Mats is on baritone, Sebastian Bergstrom, piano, Joacim Nyberg on bass, and Emil Astrand-Melin on drums. It's an extraordinarily game-sounding quartet on a post-bop-free good blowing date.

Mats has fire and finesse, Sebastian has a kind of post-Bley hard-charging attack, Joacim can walk out the window with it all and give you a solo that makes your ears perk up, and Emil gives it all that freetime, time-time push.

This is top-of-the-line outness. If you don't know these four well, Shift is the one to get. Since there is a limited pressing of 500 LPs, now is the time!
