Leading Swedish bassist Mattias Svensson has assembled a quintet of top-flight jazz musicians especially for this YSJF concert.

“It’s a dream project that brings together some of my absolute favourite musicians.
We will mainly be playing my arrangements of original compositions and standards,” says Mattias Svensson.

Pianist Bill Mays was a studio musician in Hollywood for many years and has played with jazz greats such as Gerry Mulligan, Frank Sinatra and Sarah Vaughan.

Vocalist Viktoria Tolstoy and Mattias Svensson have worked together for over 25 years. Mattias Svensson featured on her most recent album “Stations” (2019).

Mattias Svensson was an original member of the Jan Lundgren Trio when it was formed in 1995 and first played with drummer Morten Lund in the trio 20 years ago.

Luxembourgish vibraphonist Pascal Schumacher is someone Mattias Svensson has admired since listening to the Pascal Schumacher Quartet’s first album “Change of the Moon” (2004). Today’s concert will be the first time they have performed together.
