|The music is both intimate, airy, and naked, as well as intense, dramatic and monumentally loaded with melodic statements. It is timeless with its interaction between freeform and a sharply edged rhythmic drive. Most of all, the music owns an electric vein, and is a distinguished example of contemporary and acoustic jazz with an organic ensemble playing of high integrity. -- Jazz Special - Denmark
Last year they won the Tremplin Jazz in Avignon. First of all we were seduced by the sound of Gunnar Halle. The strength of the group lies in the ability to construct an atmosphere and euphonious drama built on clear structure. --Jazzman - france
I have tremendously enjoyed being turned on by such wonderful music across the Atlantic! The Fattigfolket release has been given many listens on my stereo.
