Nils Landgren / trombone & vocals
Jan Lundgren / piano

On "Kristallen", Landgren and Lundgren artfully capture the magic of Swedish folk music and revel in the melodies of their own compositions or the Great American Songbook. Subtle soundscapes emerge between sublime lightness and melancholic musing. Their chamber jazz flows calmly and serenely. "Kristallen" is a musical diamond shining in many colours, carefully cut in intimate togetherness.
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.
