Lindgren gets 6 points out of 6

LASSE LINDGREN CONSTELLATIONS : "In the mood for standards"

6 out of 6

Gothenburg trumpeter Lasse Lindgren goes for the knockout punch directly in the 1960’s classic Watermelon Man and goes on to bring older standards up to date with bright new arrangements for quartet, septet and a muscular big band – all with musicians that play with a lust for life and with tight cohesion.

On stage 44-year-old Lindgren is equally impressive and demonstrates with a fat and penetrating tone in inspired solos that he is one of the very few who can walk in Maynard Ferguson’s footprints without making it sound like a parody.
