Väsen meets Trio X

A bunch of us piled into a couple of cars for a trip to Söderfors, where Väsen was playing a collaborative concert with a jazz trio. They created a lot of new repertoire together for this special project, working out new arrangements and stretching each other’s boundaries. It was really interesting stuff. Each trio also played one tune on its own, which was nice for adding context. I was especially interested in how adding a bass player changed Roger’s role, and enjoyed his getting to play cittern some. I also hadn’t known that Mikael has a blue electric instrument that looks violin-ish but that he calls a cello, with a really deep range. The calpyso tune was an entertaining direction — maybe Väsen will take that on in their own rep??
