Jan Lundgren
Man in the Fog
Jan Lundgren: piano
Release date 14.02.2013

Swedish pianist Jan Lundgren will releases his first official solo piano album titled “Man in the Fog”. After almost 40 CD’s released under his own name, Jan finally felt ready to approach the most difficult configuration for a pianist: alone in front of his instrument. “Man in the Fog” has turned out to be a very intimate album presenting an artist at the peak of his art as a instrumentalist, composer and improviser. This CD celebrates the quintessence of a steadily built career as an artist, constantly developing his technique and deep musical knowledge into a genuine and personal language, combined with a unique sense for the melody and the poetry of jazz. The depth of Jan’s musical universe is indeed amazing and shines through the selected repertoire of songs by distinguished Nordic composers, film music (the theme from Chinatown) and original compositions.

Eric Le Lann
“I Remember Chet”,
Eric Le Lann: Trumpet | Nelson Veras: Guitar | Gildas Boclé: Bass
Release Date 14.03.2013

With more than a dozen albums to his credit, I remember Chet is the first collaboration between Eric Le Lann and the label BeeJazz. For this recording, Eric Le Lann surrounded himself with two great musicians, Gildas Boclé (Bass) and Nelson Veras (Guitar). Eric Le Lann is no stranger to the music of Chet Baker, the two worked together often during the 1980’s.
Eric Le Lann has showed a lot of eclecticism during his career, venturing into styles ranging from “fusion” Jazz to French variety with his Edith Piaf covers. With “I remember Chet” Eric returns classic jazz with great sincerity, inspired by the purity and the fragility of Chet Baker’s music. More Information
