Jazz with groove, swing and nerve
Over time, it has become a quite popular tradition for Kwella to create a festive atmosphere at Cafe Gemmestedet with his trio during the Jazz Festival.
The trio love, groove, swing and nerve, while at the same time highly valuing the ensemble and the unpredictable elements. The repertoire is a blend of hard-swinging jazz standards and own groovy tunes.
The three musicians are known from a number of leading bands and have all released several CDs.
Jens Christian Kwella, together with Kwella/Bjørnskov, released his seventh album in 2018. Regarding Kwella, Jazz Special wrote the following:
"There is a continuation of melody and presence that feels good!"
He has previously been highlighted as one of the leading guitarists in the country and compared to names such as John Scofield, Kenny Burrel and Herb Ellis.
Kwella is currently a lecturer in guitar at the Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus/Aalborg, and regularly works in Scandinavia, Italy and South Africa.
