Info for There is no Future

Jazz on life and death! In There Is No Future, Swedish jazz singer Sara Aldén makes her album debut with self-written music and arranged jazz standards with a focus on grand crescendos and vulnerable intimacy. She creates jazz as if her life depended on it where the question of the end of everything is allowed to exist, the small endings and the big ones. Sara Aldén and her trio present a musical sinkhole in the ongoing history of jazz, where doom-filled and intimate compositions alternate with dizzying arpeggios and dystopian and lyrical sound worlds. The album begins with saturated arrangements and dense compositions filled with energy and drive to gradually turn into open hopelessness and question marks. "What a Wonderful World" closes the album where time is reminded and throws the listener into a rocking vacuum. Sara Aldén (voice), August Björn (piano) and Daniel Andersson (double bass) explore how contemporary jazz expresses itself when three musicians from the Nordic countries come together.

"Sensitive, naked and with a sympathetic thoughtfulness" (Dan Backman, JAZZ (Orkesterjournalen)

Sara Aldén's debut is with "pass with distinction", now it's just a matter of waiting for more." (Lennart Götesson, Dala Demokraten)

Sara Aldén
The jazz singer's album debuts in the spring of 2024 with original compositions of jazz with a focus on intimacy, grand crescendos and the end of everything. She is described as the creator of "jazz on life and death". In the upcoming debut album "There is no future" (Naxos, Prophone, March 2024), Sara Aldén and her trio show a massive sinkhole in the history of jazz, where doom-lled compositions are interspersed with dizzying arpeggios and sound worlds that reect the end of all as we know it. She made her EP debut in 2022 with the critically acclaimed "A Room of One's Own" where she explored the norm and form of jazz with her very own expression and musical language. With musical sound heroes such as Lina Nyberg, Gretchen Parlato, Esbjörn Svensson Trio and Tigran Hamasyan, Sara creates broad brushstrokes for how jazz sounds in 2024.

Sara has previously played with musicians such as Anders Jormin, Malin Wättring and Martin Sjöstedt and performed her release concert together with Lina Nyberg at Skeppet on June 3, 2022. Sara has received the Fredrika Bremer scholarship and the Royal Academy of Music's local scholarships.
