A re-connection with a musical icon or tradition – it is often the way something new, maybe even game-changing emerges. That was the idea in curator/ producer’s Siggi Loch’s mind when he suggested to Magnus Lindgren that he might look at re-tracing the footsteps of Herbie Mann. Stockholm Underground is a homage to the one of the greats of the jazz flute, and to his legendary 1969 album Memphis Underground, listed by Rolling Stone in 2013 in the “100 Best Jazz Albums” of all time
Magnus was chosen to compose music and perform as a soloist at the Nobel Prize Banquet in 2003 and 2016.
