Liner notes by Thomas Millroth


“Sven-Åke Johansson solo. Listen to the way he listens to himself, as if tasting words, resonance, rhythm, movement. And, strictly speaking, he is of course not really playing a solo, but always with himself. His own first listener. (…) During the performance, he at times moves away from himself, as though he were listening to what he is doing, trying to understand where he has ended up. All these words that filled his mouth.”
—Thomas Millroth
