“Call it a neo-”New Thing” sensation” (Josef Woodard/DownBeat Magazine) (4 ½ out of 5 stars)

The Norwegian/Swedish Quintet Friends & Neighbors was founded in 2009 in Trondheim, Norway. Since their first record, "No Beat Policy" in 2011, they have not just released three more powerful albums, but also established themselves as a force to be reckoned with on the Scandinavian jazz scene. The band is clearly defined by the five members strong individual voices, both as players and composers, and their long experience of playing together gives the music a clear and distinct sound. Stretching from melodic ballads to hard swinging free-bop or powerful free jazz they keep their collective sound intact, showing influences from a wide spectra of jazz history. The band has been touring frantically through the years, including concerts Europe, USA, Japan, New Zealand and Australia.

The quintet’s latest album "What´s Next?" on Clean Feed (2018) has received great critique from domestic and international press.

“They have consistently released excellent music and What’s Next (following 2016’s What’s Wrong) is, I believe, their best album yet”. (4.5 of 5 stars by Nick Metzger/

“Friends & Neighbors expressed Ornette’s affection for the people who lived near his Prince Street loft; these guys write and play like they like each other, which results in a chemistry that’s hard to resist” (Bill Meyer - Dusted Magazines)
