Fredrik Lundin


Since arriving on the Danish Jazz scene in 1981 this elegant and explosive musician has been searching relentlessly into the realms of experimental and contemporary music. A truly original and virtuoso voice, performing in bands such as his own 11-piece roots/blues/jazz oriented Fredrik Lundin Overdrive, his quintet Offpiste Gurus, featuring singer Trine-Lise Væring, the quintet Silhouette which he co-leads with altoist Christina von Bülow, the improv-trio Sound of Choice with Hasse Poulsen, the ECM-recording and border-crossing Jon Balke Magnetic North Orchestra, Marilyn Mazur Group, and the so called "beatles-jazz" group Radiostar. Also he is a distinguished composer for contemporary ensembles, theater and jazz groups. He has received several awards and prizes, among them two Danish Music Awards for best jazz album of the year. He has released 8 albums as a leader, and plays as sidemand on about 50 other albums.

Offpiste Gurus: In Case Of Fire

Read "In Case Of Fire" reviewed by Budd Kopman

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
