Mathias Landaeus Trio

Fun and unpretentious, yet with sophistication and brutal honesty
"It is supreme music, that testifies both dedication and breadth of expression, and is brilliantly performed...makes one think just as much of Monk and an early Keith Jarrett as gospel and dub."  DIG JAZZ about the album Into Life

In addition to performing as a trio, the band also has a long history of successful collaborations with a wide range of artists. They have just released an album with the celebrated poet Daniel Boyacioglu. Another ongoing collaboration is with renowned free jazz saxophonist Martin Küchen, with whom they have made three releases.

Notoriously playful pianist Mathias Landæus has released fifteen albums as a leader. He lived in New York in the 1990's, where he studied with Jaki Byard and Richie Beirach, among others. After returning to Sweden he became an important figure on the Stockholm jazz scene. In addition to his inspiring work as a composer and musician, he has had a crucial role in building community and bringing musicians together by starting live scenes like the still influential Glenn Miller Café in Stockholm, and more recently the club Underground in southern Sweden. His lyrical touch and original quirky style have earned him a reputation as one of the most exciting pianists in Sweden.
