"IT WAS THE ARTICULATION and focus in this recording which first drew my attention; and indeed, Minusgrader, from Swedish saxophonist Örjan Hultén and his Orion quartet, has only continued to charm with its sparky animation and romantic lyricism – an evenly-balanced conversation glistening with individual flecks of personality along the way"

NEW ALBUM! ÖRJAN HULTÉN ORION - MINUSGRADER
Orion celebrates their 10 anniversary by releasing album no 4. This time the whole band contributes with new songs. The somber poem Minusgrader by Tranströmer has been the inspiration to the title track and the album contains a broad spectrum of both depth and simplicity, performed with close interplay and sensitivity.
