Koma Saxo is a highly potent new five-piece produced by the visionary Berlin-based Swedish bassist-producer Petter Eldh. The lineup brings together five heavy jazz names on the Berlin–Nordics axis, including Eldh on bass, Christian Lillinger on drums and the frontline of three saxes: Otis Sandsjö, Jonas Kullhammar and Mikko Innanen. Despite the top-billing names, make no mistake: this is not just another »supergroup», but a real working band with their own sound and musical trajectory. Eldh’s vision for the Koma Saxo sound is one step ahead of what groovy avantgarde jazz could sound like.
Eldh’s vision for the Koma Saxo sound is one step ahead of what groovy avant-garde jazz could sound like in 2019, involving postproduction work with the raw material recorded in Helsinki in connection to Koma Saxo’s successful debut at the We Jazz Festival. Both studio and live tapes exist side by side, and Eldh goes deep in molding the final music to be heard on the upcoming Koma Saxo releases.
Otis Sandsjö – saksofon, Mikko Innanen – saksofon, Jonas Kullhammar – saksofon, Petter Eldh – bass, Christian Lillinger – trommer
