Jan Lundgren – Kind of Jazz III
Jan Lundgren’s triplet: Jan Lundgren Trio meets Musica Vitae.
Friday 8 March 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.
The last time he 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).
The same theme will be reprised in this third and final concert in Jan Lundgren’s series, Kind of Jazz. The string section will be expanded as the Jan Lundgren Trio performs with one of Sweden’s finest chamber orchestras, Musica Vitae.
We will hear Jan Lundgren’s own compositions as well as music by Jan’s forerunner, Jan Johansson. In addition to Jan, the Jan Lundgren Trio includes Mattias Svensson on bass and Zoltan Csörsz on drums. The trio had its breakthrough with the album Swedish Standards, which also won Orkesterjournalen’s (Orchestra Journal) Golden Record award in 1997.
