Free jazz, avant-garde rock and psychedelic soul combine in the 28-piece Swedish band Fire! Orchestra.
Unbound and unrestricted, the dynamics of this improv collective have produced a sound with depth and pulsating rhythms.
At the core of Fire! is the trio of saxophonist Mats Gustafsson (The Thing), bassist Johan Berthling (Tape) and drummer Andreas Werliin (Wildbirds & Peacedrums). For an exclusive show in London, they will take their musical adventure to the next level as they are joined by a vast guest list of players and singers from the Swedish music scene.
Above is their performance of the track ‘Enter’.
