Daniel Karlsson Trio

The Daniel Karlsson trio’s music is described as distinctive and extrovert, clearly influenced by 60s jazz, soul and pop but with a clear Nordic scent of EST. All the music is penned by Daniel Karlsson. The Trio have since their album debut Das Taxibåtin September 2013 established themselves as one of the most interesting constellations in Swedish and European jazz.

Not least through the magnificent hat trick brought home by their sophomore release Fusion for Fish,released in August 2014. The album ended up winning the Swedish Radio’s Jazz Group of the Year Award 2014, Swedish jazz magazine OJ’s Golden Disc 2015 as well as the Swedish Jazz Grammy 2015.

Ears have been opened outside of Sweden as well, their music met with press accolades and frequent airplay in Germany, and Ireland and of cause the inaugural tour of the UK = hosted by Birmingham and West Midlands Jazz.

Line Up: Daniel Karlsson– piano/keyboards, Christian Spering- double bass & Fredrik Rundqvist- drums & percussion

Many bands are described as being a ‘Power Trio’ and, to my ears, none fit the description better than this award-winning Swedish band.” Review live gig at Jazz Cafe, Newcastle Sep. 2018
