Rolf Jardemark, born 1960 in Gothenburg, Sweden. He picked up the guitar at the age of twelve. After a few years of self studies he enrolled at music high school. In 1977 Jardemark and fellow guitarist Per Hovensjö founded a duo, still active today. The lively jazz scene of Gothenburg, with musicians as e.g. guitarist Ulf Wakenius and the jazz club "Artdur" (now renamed "Nefertiti"), made a strong impression.
After graduating from Gothenburg College of Music in 1985, Jardemark has been seen in many different musical constellations. Some of the artists with whom he has performed include Bohuslän Big Band, Michael Ruff, Nils Landgren, David Wilczewski, Lars Danielsson, Al Harewood, Bob Mintzer, Margaretha Evmark, Erik Gullbransson, Nils-Bertil Dahlander (Bert Dale), Lew Soloff to name a few
