A set of original music recorded at the legendary Glenn Miller Café in Stockholm, Sweden. Artist and dear friend Oreste Sabadin drew a set of sketches while listening to the takes I sent him. There's an original drawing for every tune. Thanks to Vilhelm Bromander and Konrad Agnas for their musicianship, to Johan Berke for his attention to detail and great ears during the recording, mixing and mastering process. To Oreste Sabadin for his clarity of intent and friendship.
RÖD means RED in Swedish.

Vilhelm Bromander bass

All compositions by Alberto Pinton except Turmeric Sunset, a collective improvisation
Contemporary, yet steeped in an understanding and love of the genre, Kirchner's compositions are first rate, the covers judiciously selected, and the playing throughout is absolutely first rate. Hard to pick anyone out, but the bass clarinet is just sublime.
Stellar performances and terrific compositions. This is seriously good jazz, deeply spiritual in many ways, but with a confident, energised spring in its step.
Sure to be one of the standout jazz releases of 2018. Michael Mueller
