The sixth of Cloudland's 12 tracks the gorgeous 'Desert of Catanga' by double bassist-cellist Lars Danielsson's band Liberetto to be released on 28 May by the ACT label is streaming. Last time marlbank heard Danielsson was actually live rather than on record that time at the Wigmore Hall in London during the 2019 London Jazz Festival. The overall line-up is mostly the same, the Swedish leader joined by French pianist Grégory Privat; the legendary e.s.t drummer Danielsson’s fellow Swede Magnus Öström; long-time band guitarist Londoner John Parricelli; and this time added and featured on 'Desert of Catanga' Syrian clarinettist Kinan Azmeh. The album also includes a guest appearance by Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen. The Danielsson signature sound is a romantic, nomadic sound that straddles the lilting Nordic landscapes of Danielsson’s imagination (that 'Asta' cadence and lick) and a hybrid Mediterranean here into Levantine sound. All pieces were written by Danielsson, the album recorded in Sweden in a Mölnlycke studio near Gothenburg and produced by singer Cæcilie Norby, Öström and Danielsson.
