“Chart-toppers with charm.” (The TIMES)

The quartet "4 Wheel Drive" brings together four of Europe's most renowned jazz musicians: Nils Landgren, Michael Wollny, Lars Danielsson and Wolfgang Haffner. And since their first joint album in 2019, the project has become a real working band. "4 Wheel Drive II" combines original compositions by the four musicians with some of their personal favorite pop songs.

 


Nils Landgren
For the words versatility and curiosity, there is a synonym: Nils Landgren. Virtuosically, "Mr. Red Horn" navigates from perspective to perspective, partly because he thrives on constant change. Two souls reside in his chest: When the audience experiences him with his "Funk Unit," the Swede reveals his distinctive, relentlessly groovy side and becomes the jazz action hero. But there's also a very gentle, melancholic, highly sentimental Nils Landgren. This side of him emerges, for example, during the Advent season when the instrumentalist and singer celebrates "Christmas With My Friends," or in his ballad projects. On the trombone, he intones with unparalleled smoothness, and his uniquely textured, fragile voice touches the heart and soul with its sensitivity.
