Energetic, melodic, straight, free, swinging, intense, high and low:A Tonic For The Troops mixes all these ingredients in a jazz quartet form.

Bassist Ellen Brekken usually plays in Hedvig Mollestad trio, Tord Gustavsen trio, Falkevik and a lot of other projects within jazz, rock, pop and folk music. In A Tonic For The Troops she is the general and also make her debut as a composer.

In the music we hear echoes of bassists / songwriters like Marc Johnson, Ray Brown, Charlie Mingus and Scott LaFaro, where Brekken leads us through unison riffs, fast races, calm landscapes and playful rhythms in a modern mainstream tradition.
Brekken has gathered a troupe of very active performers with backgrounds from both the American jazz tradition and the more modern European jazz, who attack the music with both speed and finesse.
