"First of all I’d like to thank Joakim Milder, Walter Brolund and Norrbotten Big Band for giving me this fantastic gift for my 70th birthday! What joy to spend a couple weeks with this versatile and inspiring group of musicians. Their incredible knowledge never ceased to amaze me. When this wonderful group of talented people is faced with miscellaneous challenges, in this case Read more the brilliant and personal compositions these eight composers contributed with, a lot of exciting and creative encounters emerge.-Perhaps music is most inspiring when it leads the performer toward a deeper understandingof the self. This experience has made me grow musically and that gift I value above all else." - Jojje Wadenius Read less
