Susana Santos Silva - Life and Other Transient Storms

"The increasingly regular presence of Portuguese trumpet player Susana Santos Silva on the Scandinavian jazz arena was bound to end up in a project such as this. After several years collaborating with bassist Torbjörn Zetterberg, she enlisted Lotte Anker, Sten Sandell and Jon Fält in what she calls her “Scandinavian quintet”. Her idea all along has been to forego traditional compositions and devote herself to free improvisation, navigating an intense, pressing sonority, inspired by the transient and ephemeral nature of life."

Susana Santos Silva - Trumpet, flugelhorn
Lotte Anker - Tenor and soprano saxophones
Sten Sandell - Piano
