Änglaspel (Angel Chimes) was elected by the readers of the musical magazines Tonfallet and Orkester Journalen as the jazz group most deserving to make a record debut in 1982.

The sextet plays mostly music by pianist Stefan Forssén, music that is progressive without being complicated, tender without being sentimental, wild without being brutal. Stefan’s music is a personal artistic synthesis of the most varied musical traditions, from Baroque music to Hambo of northern Sweden, from Thelonius Monk to Alice Tegnér, a Swedish composer of children’s songs. Stefan’s artful melodical arabesques and rhythms make an indelible impression on one’s memory. They are also capable of inspiring the skillful musicians in Änglaspel sometimes to exciting drama, other times to calm lyricism.
