The motto "The Art in Music" is not only reflected in the cover design at ACT but also through the new series "The Gallery Concerts," recorded in the Berlin "ACT Art Collection." Following the duo of Johanna Summer and Jakob Manz, there is now another intense dialogue: between the two Swedes, Jan Lundgren on piano and Hans Backenroth on double bass. Both are musical storytellers, playing without any vanity and brimming with lively tales. These qualities have been demonstrated by Jan Lundgren in his own projects, including the pan-European success trio "Mare Nostrum" and in duos with trombonist and singer Nils Landgren and bass icon Georg Riedel. The collaboration with Hans Backenroth, one of the most sought-after European bassists internationally, is a worthy continuation of this tradition. It's pure jazz poetry.

Jan Lundgren
Jan Lundgren is part of an impressive and long tradition of star pianists from Sweden, including Jan Johansson, who tragically passed away early, and more recently, Bobo Stenson and Esbjörn Svensson. Lundgren has never taken the easy path in life and has always strived to improve his incredible technique and advance his music. His ability to forge the most diverse music styles into a fascinating whole is extraordinary in itself. Whether it's contemporary classical music, Nordic folk traditional music, pulsating, groovy jazz, or African-American music, Lundgren finds a unique way to take the listener on a journey of discovery with his highly individual sonic landscapes - sometimes relaxing, sometimes utterly invigorating.
