To my friends - Free and Original!

Free, lyrical, inspired and original - these words came to me when I first heard Lasse with the Stockholm Jazz Orchestra, and they remain the ones I pass on you. The feeling of Scandinavia is strong, the senses of just beginning a search, of not being instructed where to go by prevailing winds, and the ability to inspire cooperation and devotion in his band is everywhere.

The writing is fresh and his alone. The unity in the band is most impressive, and the individuals remain themselves, while contributing to a musical union. I played with them, and I know how good it is. 

Proceed with my blessing.
