Walkin' Around - Electric Excellence

”WALKIN’ AROUND” With Lasse Lindgren Hip Bop Constellation

Electric energy. The most energy-packed CD of the year.

It’s not difficult to heap superlatives over Lindgren’s Hip Bop Constellation, a group with drive and agility both among the soloists and in the ensemble work. 
A glowing CD! --- Orkester Journalen

….both in the matter of solo playing and composition Lindgren’s music is a kind of summary of the streams in both jazz and other related music of today, but with a pronounced individual attitude, fresh, stimulating and devoid of jumping on any bandwagon.

In general the group consists of players who can meet the challenge of the music at every level. Vital, engaging jazz music. --- Jonny Olsson, Nya Vermlandstidning

I have come to realise that Swedish jazz is in the highest division but this is the best that I have heard for some time. ”Walkin’ Around” is quite simply great music by great musicians. --- Jens Rosengren, Gävle Dagbladet

You can’t help liking it. It really swings, sensitive cohesion and excellent improvisations. --- Blekinge läns tidning

……elegance and tastefullness coupled to excellence makes interesting listening and with many good solos from everyone involved. I would not want to be without this CD. --- Ljusnan

Among new Swedish jazz Cds there is one that stands out. It is Lasse Lindgren’s ”Walkin’ Around”. Seldom does a group feel so tight and cohesive as this one. There is big city jazz and Nordic sounds, there is hard swing and ballads, there is space for soloists even if it is the work of a collective ensemble. --- Mats Palmquist, Borås Tidning

…excellent ideas. --- International Trumpet Guild
