Johan Hansén-Larson Featured on Kristian Persson Elements Album

Kristian Persson Elements: Let It GoJohan Hansén-Larson can be considered a regular here at No Treble, with several of his videos being featured here over the years.

Now, the Swedish bassist can be heard at length on the Kristian Persson Elements jazz album, Let It Go.

Cormac Larkin of the Irish Times says “Funk and soul are the main references in Persson’s hot, big-hearted sound, with more than a nod to James Brown and Fred Wesley and echoes of Pat Metheny’s lush harmonic soundscapes.”

And even better, the title track includes an extended bass solo. Check it out:
