The good melody – the cool groove
It has become a tradition and a staple that guitarist Jens Christian Kwella gathers a trio every year to play at Café Gemmestedet. This year it will be Kwella/Lysgaard/Friis who love the good melody and the cool groove. In addition, ensemble, interaction, unpredictability are highly valued.
All three musicians have been part of the Danish music scene for many years, and out of the many years of experience arises an intense ensemble and present expression.
Jens Christian Kwella has released seven albums as a solo artist, and the reviewers have written, among other things:
Jens Christian Kwella masters a fit and richly faceted style, and his compositions reflect a musician with a sense of both big picture and little details.
Jens Christian Kwella is an associate professor of guitar at the Royal Academy of Music, and also works regularly in Scandinavia, Italy, and South Africa.
Kristoffer Lysgaard belongs to the new generation of talented and forward-thinking jazz musicians and has already made a name for himself in a number of contexts.
Peter Friis is one of the most sought-after bassists in Aarhus and has played with Jesper Thilo, Finn Odderskov, Trio Before, and many others.
