∴ Alfred Lorinius has with his powerful and lyrical bass playing made a name for himself on the Scandinavian jazz scene. He’s played festivals like London Jazz Festival, Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival, Tampere Jazzfestival, Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Umeå jazz festival, Stockholm Jazz Festival… He’s been heard in a large number of contexts, working with musicians like Elias Stemeseder, Isabel Sörling, Roland Keijser, Karl-Martin Almqvist, Fabian Kallerdahl, Klabbe Hörngren, Audrey Chen, Naoko Sakata.
In his solo project Stormfågel he melts down some of his influences to a sound rarely heard before. For his upcoming 2nd album, that will be released on the brand new label toppkonst, he’s been working with German drummer Oliver Steidle (The Killing Popes, Philipp Gropper’s Philm) as well as his old stablemate from Farvel, Otis Sandsjö (Y-Otis, Lucia Cadotsch Speak low). The line up is completed with guitarist Joel Fabiansson (Anna von Hausswolff) and singer Marie Nilsson (Macuwa). Also, Henrik Magnusson has been involved in colouring some of the tracks with beautiful synths. Sound engineer Petter Eriksson (worked with Atomic, Elifantree, Daniel Lemma, Freddie Wadling) has done some beautiful work recording co-producing, mixing and mastering the music. The album will contain both quintet and bass solo tracks.
