Robert Erlandsson Quartet

For a few years I’ve been thinking about starting a band of my own.
A quartet who plays their own music in the classical composition
saxophone, piano, bass and drums. I’ve gathered some of my
favourite musicians and in January 2012 I started writing
music with their voices in mind.
In December the same year we recorded the album “News”
that will be released during 2013. Enjoy!
