Currently on the UK leg of their European tour, this is their only Southwest concert. The trio’s music is described as distinctive and extrovert. Using the standard piano trio format, the music is far from being formulaic with influences such as 60s jazz, club music, dance and electronica, soul and pop clearly evident, but with a clear Nordic scent of EST - Esbjorn Svensson Trio. All the music is penned by Daniel Karlsson. The Trio have, since their album debut Das Taxibåtin in September 2013, established themselves as one of the most interesting bands in Swedish and European jazz.
They achieved a hat-trick of awards with 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.
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 the rich Nordic heritage in jazz piano. Highly recommended it makes for great listening
The Daniel Karlsson Trio are Daniel Karlsson – piano & keyboards, Christian Spering – double bass and Fredrik Rundqvist – drums & percussion.
"Five words to sum it up? Riveting. Cool. Playful. Unconventional. Most of all, enjoyable" Rob Mallows, Kind of Jazz
"…a very welcome hour of fusion-tinged power jazz." London Jazz News
