Blue House Jazz Orchestra with Amanda Ginsburg

Younger Than Springtime – the young Swedish jazz elite led by Peter Asplund & Magnus Lindgren.

Konserthuset’s big band is a new experience every time. For each performance, band leaders Peter Asplund and Magnus Lindgren both assemble a group of instrumentalists who will give character to the selected theme. This time the band is composed of the young Swedish jazz elite – and as a guest artist, we will hear Amanda Ginsburg, a new rising star among Swedish jazz singers and winner of a Swedish Grammy Award 2019 for the album Jag har funderat på en sak (”I've Been Thinking About Something”). Tonight’s theme: Younger Than Springtime.

“I let my sound bask in the musical language of Nordic melancholy. My goal is to carefully safeguard the legacy of some of the most beloved names in Swedish jazz and songs,” says Amanda Ginsburg who was nominated Newcomer of the Year by P2 Jazzkatten, Swedish Radio’s annual tribute to Swedish jazz. She was lauded in the press for her first full-length album. Inspired by Swedish icons such as Monica Zetterlund and Jan Johansson, and with a few splashes of humour from Hasse and Tage, Amanda Ginsburg conveys with unerring musical jazz sensibility something both direct and deeply personal.
