"This live-recording is an authentic attempt to show how music is made in a creative setting with a highly skilled ensemble. It primarily consists of original compositions and also includes improvised "free" composi¬tions created in the spur-of-the-moment as well as a few standard tunes. For me it very much reflects the live-concert situation, which over the years has become my primary workplace."
"Some people evade jazz, because they feel that its element of improvisation makes it “complicated”. But as in all other art forms, the beauty in simplicity becomes ever more evident to us when in the hands of interpreters who understand how far – or particu- larly how short – the distance can be between com- plexity and simplicity. These two musicians have a rich understanding of this."
"One of Scandinavia’s most talented and popular vocalists,accompanied by an experienced and virtuosic bassist. Theygave us a small taste of their duo work on Sinne Eeg’s latestalbum FACE THE MUSIC, and on EEG FONNESBÆK,they unfold their artistry throughout a full CD."
"Take One is chock full of surprising twists and turns and live excitement as the audience waits for the cat to land: a great album."
"This is a modern trio jazz recording with interaction driven by dynamic flow and a high level of creativity. The scope, the swing, the harmonic insight, the elegant plasticity of this trio, are boggling."
"So what is the difference between "Thomas Fonnesbaek, featuring Lars Jansson and Paul Svanberg," the billing for this album, and the Lars Jansson Trio, which features Jansson on piano, Thomas Fonnesbaek on bass and Paul Svanberg on drums? Well, it's all to do with emphasis."
