Mats Gustafsson ‎– The Education Of Lars Jerry (LP)


Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson is one of the most significant new faces in improvised music. Combining great sensitivity and attention to detail with boundless energy, Gustafsson works regularly with the upper echelon of European and American improvisers, including bassist Barry Guy, percussionist Paul Lovens and pianist Marilyn Crispell. The Education of Lars Jerry, which features Gustafsson on tenor and baritone saxes, French flageolet and "fluteophone" (his own contraption combining alto sax mouthpiece and flute), is his second solo record, splendidly recorded by legendary producer Jim O'Rourke in the unique acoustic space of Chicago's Renaissance Society art gallery.
