Take one of the hottest composers and keyboard players in contemporary jazz, add in featured performances from the likes of Gerald Albright, Paul Taylor and Nils Landgren, hook them up with ten wonderful new tunes and what do you have? The answer is ‘Fritzenized’, the latest album from the incredible Jonathan Fritzén.
It is Fritzén’s fifth solo CD and follows the critically acclaimed ‘Magical’ from which the title cut blasted a path to #1 on every smooth jazz airplay chart on the planet.
Now, ahead of the February 2015 release of ‘Fritzenized’, comes the highly anticipated first single, ‘A New Beginning’. This masterpiece of rhythm and melody finds Fritzén at his excellent best and seems all set to accelerate his already meteoric assent to the very top of the smooth jazz tree.
