Opposite Corner: Low-High

The Gothenburg jazz group Opposite Corner was one of the most acclaimed Swedish jazz groups during the 1970s, and in 1976 they received the Jazz in Sweden award.

Low-High is their second album, and at the time of its recording Opposite Corner belonged to the more established “modern” jazz groups. Low-High consists to a large part of compositions made by bassist Kjell Jansson. The music is playful and with a lot of unique ideas and influences. The many different styles and development lines that exist within the jazz genre are fully explored.

The band took influences from art- and folk music from different countries, but also from John Coltrane. A new addition to the band on Low-High is the singer Annika Skoglund who sings in three of the eight tracks on the record, and got very good reviews for her unique voice. Among other things, she sings a song from a poem by Göran Sonnevi, Också i mitt hjärta (As well in my heart).
