Perssons Sexa is a group based in Malmö, Sweden, playing original compositions by Jens Persson.
The members are or have been involved in projects with musicians and groups like: Tolvan Big Band, Marius Neset, Malene Mortensen, Andrew D'Angelo, Makross, Horse Orchestra, Tingsek and many more.
The music is very personal and inviting with space for both improvisation and composition, and it's framed by a interesting and wide group sound. There are two studio albums released on Havtorn Records.

Nominated in "group of the year" at Swedish Radio P2 Jazzkatten 2017
Persson Sexa is one of the best debut records I have heard
in a while. If a band already at the first attempt may
produce music that is as open and simultaneously integrated
as the groups, and so boldly confident in both its
responsiveness and its originality, they can accomplish
practically anything in the future. That's a future I long
PETER SJÖBLOM, KULTUREN MAGAZINE
”Strongly composed and cleverly arranged modern jazz. One of this year’s most successful Swedish jazz
– Alexander Agrell, Sydsvenskan
Its debut is a suite of six compositions; all feature
strong, upbeat melodic lines, deep knowledge of modern jazz
vocabulary and powerful group interplay that leaves enough
room for personal interpretations and free improvisations.
