Farvel (previously Isabel Sörling Farvel) is by many described as one of the most important voices on the Scandinavian jazz scene. With their unconditional way of combining improvisation with composed music and lyrics - and within this way of working expanding forms in ways rarely heard before, they really stand out as ambassadors of the new jazz generation. Their latest album RÖK was released by Bugge Wesseltofts on Jazzland Recordings, the home of Atomic, Sidsel Endresen, Jon Balke and many more.

"An artist with amazing courage - plunging into the unknown, with her imagination and expression affecting every listener who has a heart. Her group’s utterly strong debut album takes Nordic jazz a step further with it’s exquisite blend of collective improvisation, tight arrangements and thoughtful lyrics " Motivation of the jury when receiving the Jazz cat 

"...A farewell to the safe and predictable, (...), that is how the music on this fine album is. Delicate and fragile so you have to listen carefully, with the start of something heavier and more solid, just to slowly dissolve.” Jan Strand, Orkesterjournalen
