Kwellafantrio feat. Jens Mikkel (DK)

Hard-swinging standards and groovy original tunes

It has become a tradition as well as a major attraction that Jens Christian Kwella and his trio light up Cafe Gemmestedet during Aarhus Jazz Festival.

The trio loves groove, swing and nerve, and highly values the ensemble, interaction and the unpredictable. The repertoire is a mix of hard-swinging jazz standards and groovy original tunes.

The three musicians are known from a long line of leading bands and have released several albums. Kwella has released six CDs as a solo artist, of which reviewers have said:

'Jens Christian Kwella masters a fit and faceted playing style and his compositions reflect a musician with a sense for the big picture and the detail.'

He has previously been hailed as one of the nation's leading guitarists and has been likened to artists such as John Scofield, Kenny Burrel and Herb Ellis. Kwella works as a lecturer in guitar at the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus/Aalborg and regularly performs in Scandinavia, Italy and South Africa.
