This CD was nominated by The Danish Music Awards 2012 in the category "Best Cross-over CD of the Year".
"Danish guitarist John Sund have with his new CD release THE OPEN ROAD created one of this years best World-Music releases"
- Jazz Special, by Niels Christensen -
This new CD release "The Open Road" from Danish guitarist and composer John Sund, is literally a journey through different musical cultures, owing to a fruitful cooperation with various musicians from India, Africa, Balkan (Serbia/Hungary) and Scandinavia.
The project involves 19 musicians altogether and was created and embellished on over a longer period of time. The music is difficult to categorise -- but one could simply describe this project as born out of a merger of different cultures, where John has composed the music based on the various artists involved. If one should try to put it into words, then one is literally involved in a musical adventure -- not only just geographical, but also in place of time -- from perhaps thousands of years old native music, to modern classical, world music, jazz, 'hip hop' grooves, fusion, ambient and lounge music, etc., but even more essential -- a journey through different places in your mind via the various atmospheres and sensual impressions this music awakes.
