What an amazing time I had last night, listening to The Electric Jazz Orchestra at Restaurang Landbron. Such a high standard; I think that every musician in town should have been there to experience this bundle of inspiration. I could not contain it, hahaha.
After four songs my body wanted to lay flat on the floor; such an overflow I have not felt since about a year ago when I went to see Pat Metheny in Uppsala and also Lizz Wright in Stockholm.
The band was comprised of Oskar Appelqvist (organ), Kristofer Johansson (drums), Christan Fridh (guitar), Fredrik Davidsson (trumpet) and Linus Norda who kept me hanging on his vocal technique and sensitivity to the music; at that point I was convinced that the voice does not go beyond where he took it. I truely thought, "this is the end of the road, I have finally met the end of it; the completeness of voice"; what fullness of tone!
I cannot stop to think of how well the band embraced Linus Norda like a blanket of cloud through their dynamics in every song.
I took with me the joy on their faces as they made music through the evening in this acoustic soul looking restaurant.
