Kristian Persson’s six-piece band Neighbourhood has rapidly proved to be one of the most promising bands on the Swedish jazz scene. Their debut album Maybe Tomorrow is finally here.
The music is an energetic mix inspired by the jazz, funk and soul of the 70′s, and has a pulsating groove that makes it hard to sit still. A couple of ballads, melancholic yet filled with hope, give the collection a thoughtful, reflective side. Members of the group are Kristian Persson (trombone & compositions), Jens Filipsson (saxophones & flute), Jonne Bentlöv (trumpet). Edvin Nahlin (keyboards), Aleks Brdarski (bass), and Sebastian Ågren (drums).
