Friday 11 January 2019 19.30Ends approximately 21.30
An entire world is reflected in Jan Lundgren’s three concerts under the collective title Kind of Jazz. Jan Lundgren is one of our foremost musicians and through some 50 albums and in tons of projects and collaborations, he has demonstrated his ability to embrace tradition with simultaneous self-renewal.
We can also expect a combination of tradition, a desire for exploration, and transformations – with music by, among others, Duke Ellington and Oscar Peterson – when Jan Lundgren joins up with three prominent musicians: guitarist Ulf Wakenius, who was a member of Oscar Peterson’s last quartet; bassist Hans Backenroth, who has essentially played with every elite jazz musician in Sweden and internationally; and Kristian Leth on drums, who has worked with Lundgren and Backenroth numerous times.
The last time Jan Lundgren appeared at Konserthuset was in a tribute to Jan Johansson with string musicians from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra (see a video of the concert, Happy Journey, via KonserthusetPlay).
