Slower: Slowing life/things down should be done more often. Through a series of metric modulations this tune becomes slower and slower.
Argentum: Is Latin for the precious metal silver. Pure and bright shining.
Reach: I challenged myself to write as long as possible without doing a lot of repeats.
Angel from the South: Beautiful complexity, like nature or a woman
Autumn in April: Composed while being ill and watching it snow outside in April
Illuminate: Searching and discovering new things is part of life and music. I like tunes that tell a story and don’t give everything away from the very beginning.
Aurum: Means gold in Latin. A mellow and dark composition exploring and capturing sounds from the melodic minor scale.
Miss Lisa: Composed right after my first visit to the Louvre in Paris.

Press reviews

"Slower starts this fine set as it means to go on - alto and trumpet over a skittering drum pattern and then some useful piano work delineating a well-conceived melodic line. Throughout, the emphasis is on the individual sounds of each instrument, the quiet, often high-register alto of the leader set against the brighter clarity of trumpeter Alessi and, on just two tracks, the gritty tenor of Marc Mommaas. Drummer Nasheet Waits is on as good as form as ever, while piano and bass both make their mark.

Much of the material - all composed by leader Thuelund - is pensive and medium-paced to slow, the better to hear the individual contributions, although Reach kicks up a storm of shouting saxophones and Illuminate is driven by forceful repetitive single notes on piano and then alto. It’s always a joy to hear the ingenuity of Alessi, but so too to get an introduction to leader Thuelund, whom I hope to hear more of in the years to come."
