NEW REVIEW! Swedish newspaper Jönköpingsposten delivers a late but enthusiastic review of 'Green Man'! 4 out of 5! Bo Levander writes:

"(ENG)
This is a proper throwback in time to the groovy 70s. Beat Funktion, under the leadership of keyboardist, composer, arranger and producer Daniel Lantz, take us to Upper Harlem and its clubs filled with funk and soul. Several guest soloists join in. Viktoria Tolstoy sounds really great when she sings away in Daniel's 'Tomorrow', actually sometimes a bit like Aretha Franklin. Claes Janson does a cool and laid-back ballad, 'Rewind', and lets his veiled voice be supported by horns and beautiful strings. This album has an attitude and looks back at an era whose music has so much to offer. Even for young people of today.

(SE)
Det här är en riktig nostalgitrip tillbaka till det svängande 70-talet. Beat Funktion, under ledning av keyboardisten, kompositören, arrangören och producenten Daniel Lantz, tar oss till Upper Harlem och dess klubbar med funk och soul. Flera gästsolister är med. Viktoria Tolstoy låter riktigt bra när hon sjunger ut i Daniels ”Tomorrow”, faktiskt bitvis lite som Aretha Franklin. Claes Janson gör en cool och tillbakalutad ballad, ”Rewind”, och låter sin beslöjade röst bäras fram av blås och sköna stråkar. Den här plattan har attityd och blinkar till en epok vars musik har så mycket att erbjuda. Även för dagens unga."

NEW VIDEO! Watch how the amazing Swedish/Russian jazz singer Viktoria Tolstoy sets the Fasching venue ablaze with her stirring performance of 'Tomorrow' from September 2016. Guitarist Johan Oijen's crowd-pleasing solo fireworks open up for the second half of one-on-one solo duelling between Tolstoy and trumpetist Karl Olandersson, backed by the relentless, greasy funkaholic bass-drums-guitar-rhodes stabs! As always, play this loud! We hope you enjoy and please share to your friends! Subscribe to our YouTube channel! Have a great week!
