Ulf Andersson´s long career as a jazzmusician leads all the way back to the Sixties, when he became a member of Eje Thelin´s legendary quintet . In the Seventies he was a co-leader in the fusion-group EGBA and later he formed his own group CRYSTAL EAGLE, with a.o. Ewan Svensson on guitar.He also works with organ-player Kjell Öhman in Organ Grinders, he has been musical director for singer Monica Zetterlund etc.etc...

"Brilliant Tenor sax....here he has put together a hand-picked band and everyone plays extremely skilfully on their instruments"...Leif Wigh, OJ

" Now Ulf has released a CD under his own name and it turns out to be one of the best Swedish jazz-records this year"...Åke Eriksson

"..the new CD, Flying Carpet, gets better and better every time you play it. Ulf´s excellent taste and burning enthusiasm make you discover new interesting aspects all the time.." Jan Olsson, Arbetet

"Sax-veteran Ulf Andersson leads this well meritorious quintet. The music, all originals, is mature, modern mainstream-hardbop jazz. Ulf Andersson plays wonderfully on his tenor-sax and that goes also for well-known guitarplayer Ewan Svensson.The trumpetplayer Mårten Lundgren is the surprise on this CD, a new exciting soloist...."Christer Borg, Kvällsposten
