Tolvan Big Band

The highly acclaimed Tolvan Big Band presented a newly composed suite by saxophonist Cennet Jönsson at Mejeriet in Lund on October 9 during KOPAfestival 2010. Tarantula Suite is in eight movements and includes minimalistic pieces and mystical sounds as well as afro-balkan-grooves in 23/8 and much more....

”…a truly fantastic piece of music … full of colorful surprises and  fast turns, but funny, playful and at moments very beautiful.”– according to reviewer Jan Olsson in Skånska Dagbladet at the premier of Tarantula Suite at Victoriatetern in Malmö, April 2009.
