There is undoubtedly a very special atmosphere when Swedish saxplayer Fredrik Nordström pulls the threads in the debut album of his new band, Dolores. The personal expression and creativity of the bandmembers contribute to place the music in an original strain of contemporary jazz - beautiful and melancholic. The starting point for the many things happening in the music is in Fredrik’s compositions, complemented in the release by a freely improvised track and an interpretation of John Coltrane’s “Central Park West”.

Fredrik Nordström says:
"I composed the material for Dolores with the purpose of creating music that was bare and dynamic. At the same time, perhaps due to the band's drumless setting, I wanted it to maintain a rhythmic dimension and movement that brought it forward. I have been inspired by folk music, perhaps mainly from Scandinavia and from North America. The different musical and cultural backgrounds of the musicians in this band influenced me in the writing process and contributed greatly to the final result."
