Trombonist Oscar Utterström plays his horn with a warm and
sensitive tone. Mixing straight ahead jazz with elements of
rock and electronica, the Oscar’s music is the ultimate
experience in improvised music. Oscar's writing mixes his
Swedish roots with the American and world music, giving the
finished product a unique sound. To top things off, the use
of electric trombone and a DJ makes this group one of the
most exciting groups on the scene today. Their second CD
Departure was released in March of 2012.
Oscar is also an active arranger, having written horn
arrangements for many different artists including My Morning
Jacket (Bonnaroo and New Years Eve at Madison Square
Garden), Canadian superstar Johnny Reid (recordings, live
DVD), and Nashville Jazz Orchestra.
Oscar started playing the trombone at the age of ten
