Jonas Wall dedicates his new album to Melodies.
Swedish musician Jonas Wall interprets a spectrum of personal favourites across Jazz, Hip-Hop, Soul and soundtracks using only woodwind instrumentation.
Each composition fuses with an assortment of the Sopranosax, Altosax, Tenorsax, Barytonsax, Flute, Alto Flute, Clarinet, and Bass Clarinet for a fresh perspective of love and admiration for the creators, the instruments and above all, the melody.

”A songs melody is the after wake which resonates in your mind long after the music ends. Unlike lyrics, often misheard or forgotten, a melody stays with you forever, embedded in the brain and able to be recalled in just a few notes. The melody is, in essence, the music.”
- Andrew Collins.
