"American swing music with inspiration from both free form jazz music and Swedish folk music."
Jonas Bliss is a new, exciting trio led by swedish saxophonist Jonas Liljeberg. Besides from being a frequent player in mainly Stockholm and Gothenburg, Jonas has resided all over the world in various bands. His most notorious work is with Svenska Folkjazzkvartetten (the Swedish Folk Jazz Quartet) were he plays tenor saxophone and clarinet alongside Isak Hedtjärn.
Now as a composer and arranger, Jonas met with bassist August Eriksson and drummer Henrik Jäderberg In early 2020 at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm to form a new trio: Jonas Bliss. Jonas himself describes the music as ”american swing music with inspiration from both free form jazz music and swedish folk music. Imagine a excavator playing jazz wearing a traditional swedish folk costume.” Altogether Jonas Bliss has developed a highly modern, exciting and messy sound with strong roots in jazz.
