Freya is the seventh album from Dutch saxophonist Tineke Postma. Her first since 2014, Freya is a come-back album as a leader. Following an acclaimed international career, including work with legends Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, Tineke’s Freya represents a fresh start with a new label, reinvigorated energy and an exciting band that is collectively inspired by the experiences she has gathered throughout her career. Together with trumpeter Ralph Alessi, bassist Matt Brewer, drummer Dan Weiss and featuring pianist Kris Davis, Tineke makes music that is adventurous, empowering and full of risk-taking.

The album artwork is by Chicago based artist Chad Kouri. Chad created this piece exclusively for Tineke, inspired by the music of this album. Known for his vibrant, abstract compositions, Chad Kouri (b. 1985) is a working artist based in Chicago, examining themes commonly associated with visual literacy - specifically how we see, read, and remember the world around us. His practice is influenced by minimalism, jazz, conceptual and systematic art, design, fashion, printmaking and the grey areas between them. Chad’s work resonated strongly with Tineke; to her it felt as if he was creating art in a very similar way to her and that his style fits her music perfectly. She felt very honored when he decided to create a work for her. He created this work while listening to the music of this album. It symbolises the motivic, conceptional music of Tineke and the intertwining of trumpet and saxophone which move both synchronically and separately.
