Title: Four Wheel Drive

1. Product Details

It scarcely feels necessary to mention the pre-eminent status of all four of these artists because that is evident from hearing the music. When Nils Landgren brings such feeling to his own melody Le chat sur le toit or when Michael Wollny dazzles with the blues-infused piano solo in Lady Madonna when Polygon opens with a bass intro from Lars Danielsson or when Wolfgang Haffner sets up the power groove to propel 4WD then its clear whats happening: four leading figures in European jazz who know each other well and who have appreciated each others work for many years have now got together. True their paths have crossed many times before and in all kinds of configurations. The formidable duo of Landgren and Wollny comes to mind for example as does Haffners long-term role as an anchor in the Funk Unit or Danielssons vivid bass presence in Haffners trio... but here for the very first time are the four friends as a quartet. They decided to record an album together at the Nilento Studio in Gothenburg: 4 Wheel Drive. The title of the album reflects the equal role which each of the four musicians has had in setting the direction for the quartet. They take to the road together both as superb soloists and as team players. In addition to one original composition from each of them Landgren Wollny Danielsson and Haffner also decided that they would focus on four living creative forces from the recent history of music and interpret their tunes Paul McCartney Billy Joel Phil Collins and Sting.
