Närhet

A 1 track crossover jazz single (4m 33s) — released February 18th 2022 on We Jazz

Petter Eldh's explosive ensemble Koma Saxo continues their adventures with a new album "Koma West", out on We Jazz Records, 18 March 2022. The album sees Koma Saxo expand on their previous sound with the addition of vocalist Sofia Jernberg and a strong cast of featured artists, including cellist Lucy Railton, violinist Maria Reich, pianist Kit Downes and accordionist Kiki Eldh (Petter's mom!). The hard-hitting key quintet remains, including Eldh on bass and assorted instruments, Christian Lillinger on drums, plus saxophonists Otis Sandsjö (of Y-OTIS), Jonas Kullhammar and Mikko Innanen bringing the SAXO to the KOMA operation.

Petter Eldh says about the single "Närhet":

"This is the only cover on the album. It's composed by Fritz Sjöström and the only version I know of it is by Fred Åkerström, so that's also the version that inspired this arrangement. The lyrics are about something indescribable, a feeling of some kind of unknown existence that you want to be part of. It has a sense of darkness to it."
