The new quartet Mats has put together for this album comprises some of the greatest voices on the Scandinavian and international jazz scene today.
The music is melodic, energetic and has a strong lyrical vein. "Radio Yonder" also showcases Mats Eilertsen as a rock solid and inventive songwriter. All the material on the disc is written by Eilertsen except "Hunting High and Low" by Norwegian pop group A-ha.

 

Reviews
Bassist Mats Eilertsen is a sideman for pianist Tord Gustavsen on the acclaimed Restored Returned, as is Tore Brunborg, the saxist in Eilertsen's fine quartet here. These seductive, low-key themes, with their subtle buildups to restrained anthemic tumults, at first seem to mirror the Gustavsen effect. But Eilertsen's band has its own character, not least because of the inventive, group-aware guitarist Thomas Dahl. Fans of Carla Bley's The Lost Chords, Andy Sheppard's duos with John Parricelli, or Iain Ballamy's quirky lyricism may hear some engaging echoes here. Brunborg is at his early-Garbarek best in the misty ballad Night Song, and the Sheppard feel is hypnotic on the prodding one-note sax repeats in Wall View, before Brunborg inflames it over a swelling groove. Dahl distantly suggests Pat Metheny's lilt and melodic sense on Stork, but with his own grainier sound and propulsive movement. He sounds as if he were on a brooding Morricone session on Hunting High and Low, and the softly wispy Aceh takes the session out. All these comparisons to other jazz figures are just to place it, because Radio Yonder is Eilertsen's compellingly independent show.
