”Shadow And Act” is this group´s debut CD. Amanda Sedgwick, active on the scene since almost 20 years and with three previous solo CD´s, has led a number of bands in her name but this constellation is about a year old.
The quintet is Swedish/American, and the American influence is also strong in the musical expression, which clearly descends from artists like Bub Powell and Charlie Parker. Combined with Amanda Sedgwick´s original compositions the group play their own very personal brand of bebop.
