Nana – Tepalle

A 1 track crossover jazz single (7m 4s) — released September 17th 2021 on We Jazz

Linda Fredriksson (they/them) shares their debut solo album "Juniper" on We Jazz Records, 29 Oct 2021. Linda (of Mopo and Superposition) has been working on the compositions heard on the album for several years, composing them mostly on guitar, keys and by singing. Only later have they been arranged for the band heard on the album, including Fredriksson on saxes and various instruments, Tuomo Prättälä (of ilmiliekki Quartet) on rhodes, moog and piano, Minna Koivisto on modular synth, moog and OP, Olavi Louhivuori (of Superposition) on drums, and Mikael Saastamoinen (of OK:KO and Superposition) on bass, plus featuring the Swedish artist Matti Bye on piano.

At heart, "Juniper" is a "singer-songwriter album", performed by an instrumental jazz band. The end result is unique, personal, and as Linda themself puts it "quiet and introspective". The second single ahead of the album is entitled "Nana – Tepalle". Building slowly from the anticipation of the opening lines into a glorious free form composition involving the full band, the song ends with Matti Bye's eerily beautiful piano feature, dissolving away bit by bit. The song is Linda's dedication to their late grandmother, also pictured on the single artwork.
