Lithium is a Finno-Portuguese quartet who issued their first album, RED, on the famous Dutch label Challenge Records this February. The disc was received enthusiastically, and it was met with five-star reviews in a number of international jazz media. Belgian newspaper De Standaard stated that despite its young age the group is “a very tight-knit and mature unit that plays modern Nordic jazz with a fresh touch”.
