Jacob Karlzon (SWE)

Sat 12Oct

Karlzons playing style boasts technical brilliance, great rhythmic and harmonic complexity and a perfect feeling for form

Jacob Karlzon's music resides in the intersections where Scandinavian expressions such as space, melancholy and sensitivity blend with heat and passion.

His stupendous technique and his tremendous sensibility made him a popular 'sideman' already in his early career. And with the growing reputation of his musical play, his own projects also received growing recognition. In 2010 he was awarded the Swedish Django d'Or and was voted Jazz Musician of the Year in Sweden. Being elected into the renowned group of Steinway-Artists in 2012 was an international recognition of excellence.
