Award-winning and internationally acclaimed Jazz Quartet AGNAS BROS. are releasing their third album "LYCKA TILL MED MUSIKEN" !
The four brothers Konrad, Kasper, Mauritz and Max Agnas started the group 13 years ago in the basement of their parents home. Over the years, they have had time to develop their very own music based on an almost telepathic approach to interaction, improvisation and composition. With two previous albums released, the young brothers have made success at concert halls all over europe, summer festivals and smaller jazz clubs around the Swedish countryside and in collaboration with classical ensembles like "O / Modernt" and "Stockholm Chamber Brass" as well as artists like Nils Landgren and Pat Metheny.
The upcoming album, "Lycka Till Med Musiken" contains just like previous records of music written and arranged by the brothers. With tribute to heroes such as Ludwig van Beethoven and the Japanese writer Haruki Murakami is the musical spectrum from melancholy melodies in the song
"Jan Johansson" to Sprawling Free Jazz-solos in "Spökvatten", all captured by Janne Hansson at the legendary Atlantis Studios and packed in a colorful jungle by Tora Kirchmeier.
"All appearances I have done with the brothers have been an excitement and there is no doubt that it will remain so even in the future.
With courage and much humor are they creating a common goal, to find to people's hearts"
- Nils Landgren
"It was an amazing enrichment to play with the Agnas Brothers. They have all strong, personal voices. The whole Agnas family is very special. "
- Pat Metheny
”Den jazz de presenterar är en underbar mix av mogen musikuppfattning och ungdomligt uppror. (...) De fyra bröderna är i grunden frapperande goda solister, men de har lyckats foga samman sina solistiska incitament till ett fullödigt ensemblespel där de fyra ges stort utrymme att agera i frihet.”
