Composer and saxophonist Örjan Hultén’s band Orion features four of Sweden’s top musicians, each of them well-known and celebrated as musicians and bandleaders in their own right.
Orion is an extraordinary band with the ability to combine various of musical styles in a concept of modern jazz. In his compositions Hultén moves effortlessly across boundaries and musical genres. Here and there Middle Eastern and Balkan traits can be heard while one can distinguish traces from Wayne Shorter or Joni Mitchell in other parts.
