The Initiative is a non-hierarchical collective with roots in the '60s free jazz and contemporary improvised music. The music is characterised by the joy of playing, both in free forms and long-composed suite forms, where hard swing, wild improvisations and lyrical melodies melt together in unexpected combinations.
The five members are all deeply involved in the Swedish and Norweigan free jazz scene. With distinctive voices they create a living - urgent - collective sound.Marthe Lea — SaxophoneNiklas Barnö — TrumpetLisa Ullén — PianoVilhelm Bromander — Double bassChristopher Cantillo — DrumsTracklist:1.
