Exciting new album from bass player Mats Eilertsen new quartet featuring a superb cast of musicians.

"Radio Yonder" is his best and maybe most accessible album to date. The title takes as its subject the dichotomy of "here" and "there", and the space in between, or "yonder".

Yonder is between "here" and "there". You can never get to yonder. Yonder is a place which can be seen (or visualized), but which do not have definite location.

Yonder is a state of mind of a place neither here nor there or in-between. And is as hard to grasp as the location of the rainbow.

Radio Yonder is the muse the creative artist searches to find and tune into, never truly knowing if his artistic antennas will be able pick up the tender signals flowing around out in the ether.The new quartet Mats has put together for this album comprises some of the greatest voices on the Scandinavian and international jazz scene today.With the wonderful mesmerizing sound of sax maestro Tore Brunborg stirred into guitarist Thomas Dahls electric brew, combusted by the dazzling and inspiring supportive rythmworks and percussive sounds from young Finnish drum wizard Olavi Louhivuori all firmly rooted and wheeled by composer and bandleader bassist Mats Eilertsen.

the quartet is both dynamic and playfull. All members are equal and shines through the whole album.

The music is melodic, energetic and has a strong lyrical vein. "Radio Yonder" also showcases Mats Eilertsen as a solid and inventive songwriter.

All the material on the disc is written by Eilertsen except a cover of "Hunting High and Low" by A-ha,
