Notes and Editorial Reviews

Founded in 1986, the Swedish saxophone quartet Rollin’ Phones has long been a staple in the Swedish music scene. Their versatile repertoire has been a role model for classical saxophonists world wide. For their thirtieth anniversary, this album takes a retrospective look on the ensemble’s career, featuring works by Antonio Carlos Jobim, George Gershwin, Gerald Marks, Irving Berlin, Thelonious Monk, and more. Several folk tunes are also included, showing the ensemble’s Swedish roots. Mikael Raberg worked closely with the ensemble throughout the making of this album. Raberg has been one of Sweden’s most prominent big band composers and arrangers since the 1980s.
