‘A refreshingly cliché free slice of contemporary Scandinavian piano jazz’ – The Jazz Man

The Daniel Karlsson Trio have established themselves as one of the most interesting constellations in Swedish and European jazz, since their album debut Das Taxibåt in September 2013.

The Trio’s music is described as distinctive and extrovert; The band adopts the standard piano trio format, but the music is anything but formulaic.

Their 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 abroad as well, their music met with press accolades and frequent airplay in Germany, but also in the UK and Ireland. Their sixth album Fuse Number Eleven will be released in October 2019.

Daniel Karlsson is a member of the Magnus Öström Band and you can tell instantly that there’s a strong rhythmic component to this music with a modern, metronomic and hypnotic drum beat to many tracks that suggests a family lineage back to E.S.T. as well as the rich Nordic heritage in jazz piano. He is also well known for his work in highly merited Oddjob.
