NATHAN EKLUND GROUP
Nathan Eklund, trumpet & flugelhorn; Craig Yaremko, saxophones; Steve Myerson, piano; Kellen Harrison, bass; Shawn Baltazor, drums The Nathan Eklund Group is a distinct jazz combo that released their first album, “The View From Afar", in 2006. Their second album, “The Crooked Line", is set to be released on January 23, 2007 through the Jazz Excursion Records label. The repertoire of the group is based on Eklund's original music and his unique arrangements of other's material. Although there is form and structure to every composition, the music is intended to give a great deal of interpretive responsibility and freedom to each member of the group. Through this approach, each of Eklund's works become a group arrangement, utilizing the creative energy and talents of the entire group.

“One thing that's distinctive about the music on this CD is the care and craftsmanship that have gone into it. The music is accessible but never trite; Nathan's writing...is full of unusual and often subtle touches that will delight any sensitive listener."
--Bill Kirchner, liner notes
