The compositions of Jerry Johansson for his jazz quartet are closely knitted together in a sort of trance-like pulsating flow. Deeply rooted in the expanded raga-trance-orientaded compositions and improvisations, in where names such as Gabor Szabo, Jerry Hahn, Harry Taussig and Pat Martino has travelled before.
Jerry Johansson takes these roots and enrichen them with his very own presence, knowledge and identity. It makes no secret that Jerry Johansson is not only a magician on the guitar; he is also an equally acknowledged master of the sitar; with many years of studies to become an expert not only on the instrument sitar; but also in the Indian way of thinking and philosophy of life in general. This knowledge makes itself present throughout all of Jerry´s different works.
An explosion. The inner mounting flames set ablaze.
Jerry Johansson Red.
The new power quartet with Jerry and colleagues, playing electric music of highest density. It's not jazz, it's not rock; it's Red!
In the vinyl grooves, the noonward race continues endlessly, all while the firebirds fills the sky with the sound of colors.
The music of Jerry is still constantly expanding and overtly psychedelic in the very same instant, on eternal return to forever.
Jerry Johansson allows himself to travel deeper and deeper into the magical sounds of the electric guitar (in close conversation with his much loved Gibson 1955, jazz model). But, dear friends; this is not enough! Jerry now also plays a Coral Electric Sitar; an electric sitar of legendary status, which can be heard as a musical "spice" in many magical songs through the ages, from the sixties to now. But for the first time in history, Jerry really PLAYS the Coral as no one has ever done before!
