In so-called jazz circles it doesn't happen too often that a band with an unchanged line-up releases six albums over a period of ten years. The Swedish quartet Tonbruket is an exception. On his new album "Masters Of Fog" it's once again about Start. A sound like an icy breeze blowing from the North Polar Circle over to us. An initially straight, then syncopating drum set is added, grounded by a gravitational bass. At the end the star sparkle of a Steel Guitar pedal covers the ambience. Welcome to the world of Tonbruket.
Nice gag right at the beginning: Norwegian singer-songwriter Ane Brun announces the band Tonbruket in the 33-second "Intro". This is no coincidence, as the members of the Swedish quartet have been forming Brun's backing band for several years now. As a sound bruket, of course, they act completely differently.
