Wrapping beautiful melodies into comprehensible harmonies and catchy rhythms is one art - but Emil Brandqvist has mastered yet another: Namely never to make the pieces of his trio sound simple or kitschy - seldom has simplicity sounded so refined. The percussionist and composer from Gothenburg has established his trio among the European elite, and that includes both artistic and commercial success.

With Max Thornberg and Tuomas Turunen, Brandqvist has the right partners: The bassist, who is also Swedish, acts as a bomb-proof rock in the surf and gives structure to the band and the pieces. The Finnish pianist, on the other hand, likes to indulge in neo-classicism, forming waves with his lines and chord clusters. Emil Brandqvist himself is a master of filigree drum playing. Together this results in a band sound with a high recognition value, with influences from classical music, rock and Nordic folk.

The Emil Brandqvist Trio sets standards in Nordic piano jazz.
