Some people talk a lot, whereas others keep hold of what is important, and only need a few words to get to their point. The same is true in music. Lars Danielsson and Paolo Fresu, who have now teamed up, are two musicians who choose the notes they play with extreme care. “Summerwind”, their first joint studio project, brings the Swedish master bassist/cellist’s gorgeous sound on both instruments and his fine sense for simple and haunting melodies into a partnership with the bright, airy tones of one of Europe’s most lyrical trumpeters whose way of “playing it cool” has such distinctive expressiveness.

Their first collaboration, entitled Mare Nostrum in 2007, was really rather magical. So, it was hardly surprising that Paolo Fresu, Richard Galliano and Jan Lundgren returned with Mare Nostrum II in 2016, an album that was just as superb as the last. The Sardinian trumpeter, French accordionist and Swedish pianist once again displayed their natural sense of lyricism and poetry in their highly refined jazz through reinterpretations of pieces by the likes of Satie and Monteverdi… But good things always come in threes; after having recorded Volume I in Italy and Volume II in France, it seemed only logical that this album was recorded in Sweden to complete the trilogy. In the middle of Winter 2019, Fresu, Galliano and Lundgren met up once again to mix their personal compositions together for Volume III as well as integrating two covers of soundtracks – Norman Jewison’s The Windmills of Your Mind by Michel Legrand for The Thomas Crown Affair and Quincy Jones’s Love Theme from The Getawayfrom Sam Peckinpah’s The Getaway. Their partnership reaches new heights, the spaces feel even more comfortable and the musicality of their improvisations is multiplied tenfold.  – Clotilde Maréchal

Alma is a collaboration between six-time GRAMMY’s-nominated Cuban composer and pianist Omar Sosa and celebrated Italian trumpet and flugelhorn player Paolo Fresu, with guest cello contributions on four tracks by noted Brazilian conductor, arranger, producer and cellist Jaques Morelenbaum. The compositions are all written by Omar Sosa and Paolo Fresu, except for Under African Skies , a version of the popular track from Paul Simon’s Graceland. The music on Alma (soul) is generally melodic and medium-paced, except for a fiery version of Omar s composition Angustia. Fresu’s flugelhorn work is sweet and warm and the rich and playful musical connection between Fresu and Sosa is evident throughout the recording.

On the new album Lowlands, award winning guitarist Pål Nyberg’s strong melodies move among subtle synthesizers and masterful ensemble playing. The main vision has mainly been to explore his musical world as a composer, although improvisation is always an important component. This results in music woven together in a cinematic, absorbing and slightly more produced sound. Headstrong and suggestive music that bears traces of cool jazz and psychedelia.

With “Reflections”, the young cellist Pablo Ferrández makes his debut at Sony Classical – with an exciting and revealing combination of works from Spain and Russia. “Pablo Ferrández is really special… wonderful tone, very refined vibrato, a flawless left and right hand, and a true musician, ” says Anne-Sophie Mutter about the Spaniard, born in 1991 and one of the leading cellists of his generation. Now, with “Reflections”, he presents his debut album at Sony Classical, a perfect opportunity to get to know an exceptionally talented artist, because it not only reveals his musical roots, but also shows unexpected parallels in the music of Russia and Spain at the beginning of the 20th century. For his program, he selected Denis Kozhukhin, a native of Russia, as piano accompanist. Kozhukhin and Ferrández have known each other since their time together at the Reina Sofía School of Music.
