New Arrivals: Jan Lundgren and Bob Rockwell's latest from Marshmallow Records!

Two brand-new CDs from Marshmallow Records have just arrived at Eastwind Import!

Jan Lundgren Trio / Plays Cole Porer Love Songs

A brand-new album from Jan Lundgren! For his seventh recording for the Japanese Marshmallow Records, Lundgren decided to do a Cole Porter songbook and chose eleven love songs. The trio's renditions of Porter's gems are straight-ahead and wonderful, and the glorious sound of the trio is captured vividly. If you are a fan, you cannot miss this one!

Bob Rockwell / The Joker

American-born veteran tenorman Bob Rockwell has lived in Copenhagen since 1983, and recorded several exciting albums for the Japanese Marshmallow Records. His latest album was recorded in 2006 when Rockwell toured Japan with a Scandinavian trio consisting of Danish Kasper Villaume on piano, Jesper Bodilsen on bass, and Swede Rasmus Kihlberg on drums. Rockwell plays authoritatively throughout, hinting influences from Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson and Hank Mobley. It is indeed a kick to hear such a straight-ahead, soulful tenor saxophone player today in a swinging, funky set like this!
