Anna Högberg Attack (Sweden)
Swedish saxophonist Anna Högberg’s all-female sextet, Attack, have been making waves in recent years with a fresh and irreverent perspective on modern and free jazz. Högberg has been a member of Mats Gustafsson’s monumental Fire! Orchestra, and brings a similarly grand vision to her more manoeuvrable sextet of hand-picked young musicians. The group’s debut, self- titled CD, released this year, has received huge praise and marks them out as an up-coming band to watch out for. This will be their first ever performance in the UK.
