Sea of Tranquility, March 2017

If you appreciate the avant-garde side of jazz and classical music, Cecilia Persson is probably an artist that will give you plenty of mileage. I personally found this to be quite a rewarding listen… When I am in the mood for adventurous jazz this will certainly do the trick. © 2017 Sea of Tranquility Read complete review

Donald Elfman
The New York City Jazz Record, March 2017

In 2014, Cecilia Persson was the Artist-in-Residence for the Norrbotten Big Band and this extraordinary album documents a live concert from November of that year. The bold, extended compositions present stunning written passages, a dazzling array of colors and textures and a flexible framework wherein dynamics and solo statements are open for exploration. It’s dedicated to the Swedish city of Lulea, the big band’s homebase.

This is a striking and original example of the intelligence and invention of the big band tradition as it moves into the 21st century and the world. © 2017 The New York City Jazz Record
