ALBUM RELEASE 20TH APRIL!
On The Onion's Core saxophonist Ida Karlsson has done some soul-searching, revealing a dismissal of excess and a return to her familial roots.
Ida's composing has resulted in eight rather distinctive jazz pieces. In one piece, traces of gospel hymns can be found; another harks back to traditional Swedish folk; while still other pieces maintain a more subtle complexity. "Baking" is a blues piece inspired by Swedish folk music and Jimmy Giuffre. "Popish" is a five-stroke play off of pop music and jazz harmonies.
The quartet IDKA JAZZ was founded in Malmö, Sweden in the spring of 2017.
