On paper, this new power-trio with Per Texas Johansson on saxophones and clarinets, Torbjörn Zetterberg on bass and Konrad Agnas of the drums bring to mind Jari Haapalainens trio JH3 – where the ”Texas” is also included. But Oracle makes another deal, albeit with basically the same instruments. Line-up that Sonny Rollins made famous in the late 50's, is at the same time a wide-open formation: only the most elementary, no ackordinstrument.
wide, with mounts in both jazz in the style of Rollins, who in spräckigare games. Neither is pure; it is rather a single, the jazz musical language, as the trio builds its own expression. It sounds melodic and nonthreatening, sometimes the closest to the laidback – but with the weight, which also includes a deeply rooted sense of our nordic blues.
