IT STARTED BACK IN 2005 WITH THIS CD

   In 2005 Håkan Broström   was  asked to do   a so called "composer portrait" for the Swedish record label Phono Suecia. With a more generous budget than what is  common for jazz recordings he had the opportunity to record  seven compositions for big band and five for a 9 piece string section. The CD was named after one of the compositions  "New Places".

5 years  later in the spring of 2010 Håkan was asked by jazz club Fasching to put together a big band for series of concerts with various guest artists. The band needed a name and "New Places Orhestra" was born.
