ONE is the debut album of Calle Rasmusson and will be released on
Prophone Records/Naxos on September 8, 2017. 


One is the result of two different projects:
The Roots Project, which was commissioned by the province of Halland, Sweden, was written by Calle for a ten- piece ensemble that consisting of musicians with a close relationship to that region. The group did a tour in January 2015 under Calle’s musical direction.
The Orchestra Project was meant to combine the freedom of a jazz piano trio with the rich textures of a chamber orchestra. Based on a trio recording with Swedish pianist Adam Forkelid and bassist Kristian Lind, Calle wrote arrangements and new music for chamber orchestra to be added on top of the original trio recording. The orchestra is one of Calle’s favorite ensembles in Sweden – DalaSinfoniettan.
I’ve always been fascinated by the freedom of playing in a trio setting. For me, it’s the perfect sized group if you as a musician want to create and shape the music in the moment. At the same time I’m very fascinated by the sound and the energy that only a large ensemble can produce. The purpose of this project was to combine the playfulness of the trio with the many textures of the orchestra. /Calle Rasmusson
