Adam Forkelid - Turning Point

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 5-7 working days
Following the 2021 release '1st Movement', hailed by Swedish National Radio as one of the best of the year, Adam Forkelid's latest upcoming work, 'Turning Point', offers a contemporary Nordic mirror into the journey of life. The music represents a sonic exploration of life's inevitable changes that make up each of our personal stories. Written across a month and recorded in a single day, the record showcases a poignant fusion of the piano and guitar - a collaborative interplay central to the record's identity. His expansive palette of influence includes flavors borrowed from classical composers Satie and Chopin, Brazilian and Cuban rhythms, to Bill Frisell and Chick Corea. Blending the acoustic jazz idiom with hints of electricity and a distinctive Nordic touch infuses the album with soulful, albeit energetic allure self-described as 'New Nordic Jazz'. From the stark melancholic textures synonymous with the Nordic sound to euphoric highs, Forkelid's compositions are grounded in jazz's rich history of songwriting. Marrying lyrical, memorable melodies with deep grooves and high-octane virtuosic improvisations, the composer feels the role of his music is to 'to move people and give them something relatable, not being specifically forward looking or retrospective, but just to be here and now'.
