Enjoy Piazzolla, Pat Metheny, Sting, Bacharach, Bernstein, Herbie Hancock and jazz standards in a beautiful blend where swing meets the sweetness of a lovely melody. Argentine tangos intertwines with Italian film scores, Swedish Folk Music and the blue notes of mellow jazz as these experienced musicians let their excellence flow freely – and always with contagious smiles that soon spread to their audience.

The Trio is well exposed and thoroughly enjoyed via numerous concerts throughout Sweden but all the while the individual members thrive as successful soloists and ensemble musicians on their own in a variety of circumstances: Malmö Opera and Symphonie Orchestra, in works such as West Side Story, Porgy and Bess, les Miserables, Miss Saigon; as bandmembers in Swedish Tolvan Big Band, Norbotten Big Band, Monday Night Big band and behind some of the jazz greats and other artists, like Michael Brecker, Dave Liebman, Jacob Ficher, Dizzy Gillespie, Don Byas, Tim Hagans and many, many more.
