Jan Lundgren – piano
Lars Danielsson – bass
Emile Parisien (FR) – soprano sax
This constellation of three leading figures in European jazz – Swedish pianist, Jan Lundgren, Swedish bassist Lars Danielsson and French soprano saxophonist Emile Parisien – played their first ever concert together at YSJF last year.
The response to the debut was so positive that a live recording of that concert will be released on CD – “Ystad Concert No.2” – to coincide with this year’s performance. The first in the series was “The Ystad Concert – A Tribute to Jan Johansson” (2016).
All three band members are composers in their own right and tonight’s concert will feature a mix of their own original compositions and other material.
Soprano sax player Emile Parisien will also be playing with his quartet at YSJF on 5 August. Find out more about this jazz visionary on page 9.
Last year’s YSJF performance by Jan, Lars & Emile was livestreamed and the recording is still available. For a foretaste of tonight’s concert, visit www.musikisydchannel.se!
