Connective Records proudly presents a masterful achievement by one of the most talented musicians in Sweden – Martin Sjöstedt – well known to the public as one of the most in demand bass players in Europe. In the Blink of an Eye is his premiere as a composer and arranger for Big Band under his own name. Stockholm Jazz Orchestra is one of the leading contemporary big bands today.
Jim McNeely, grammy award-winning pianist and composer writes in his liner-notes “With this CD, Martin reveals the scope of his abilities as composer and arranger for big band, and they are impressive. It’s very satisfying to see someone whom I remember as the new, young guy, develop into a major voice as a composer/arranger for big band”.
