Alex Jonsson

Alex Jønsson (born 1985) is an award winning Danish guitarist, composer and improviser based in Copenhagen.

This has led to a whole series of Danish Music Award nominations, among them ”Best New Jazz Act” with Jønssons own trio, as well as nominations for albums on which he contributes, i.e
