Musician

Magnus Ostrom

Born:

Magnus Öström was born in Skultuna, Sweden as second son to local painter Arne and Siv Öström. His brother, Tommy, was three years older and influenced Magnus in his early years with his eclectic record collection including Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd. At the age of eight Magnus built his first drum kit out of his fathers empty paint cans and only a year later he started his first band together with a kid from across the street, Esbjörn Svensson. In 1978 his brother took him to a concert of Billy Cobham with John McLaughlin, an experience that turned his musical world upside down and got him into jazz-rock. In 1985 Magnus moved to Stockholm to study at the Royal Conservatory of Music where he immediately started to play in different bands on Stockholm’s jazz scene

Jazzkaar Interviews: Bugge Wesseltoft

Read "Jazzkaar Interviews: Bugge Wesseltoft" reviewed by Martin Longley


Your scribe witnessed the Nordic supergroup Rymden three times during 2019, illustrating how much this new constellation (in Norwegian, the word means 'space,' as in cosmic space) has expanded almost uncontrollably since making their debut. Even as an abstract concept, the combination was tantalising in the extreme. Purely acoustic piano and electronically distressed keyboards from Bugge ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
