Nils Berg

Instruments: Tenor Sax, Bass Clarinet, Flute, Computer BIO Swedish jazz pioneer Nils Berg is one of the most influential voices in nordic jazz. With his quartet, The Stoner, he has made a name for himself both in Sweden and internationally, and in 2007 he received the prestigious Jazz-in- Sweden-award.. As a composer he won’t dodge projects that cross over conventional borders - collaborations with electronica artist Forss and choreographer Dorte Olesen to name a couple. His trio Nils Berg Cinemascope is a prime example of this, fusing jazz together with video clips of musicians from all over the globe gathered from YouTube. Nils was born 1977 in Gothenburg, Sweden into a musical family

Read "Tony Allen, Hugh Masekela, Luciana Souza, Dave Douglas & Other New Releases" reviewed by Ludovico Granvassu

We may be in lock-down mode but oustading jazz releases keep coming out as if nothing were of the COVID and the social distancing, bringing us much needed relief. One more reason to pay tribute to today's artists and to encourage everyone to support the music scene by purchasing music directly from the musicians and labels ...

Lisen Rylander Löve: Oceans

Read "Oceans" reviewed by Troy Dostert

While up-and-coming Swede Lisen Rylander Löve is a talented tenor saxophonist, demonstrated nicely in the quartet Here's to Us on the undersung gem, Animals, Wild and Tame (Hoob Records, 2018), she is hardly content to limit herself to one instrument--or even one genre, for that matter. In Here's to Us she teams up with trumpeter Susana ...

Troy Dostert's Best Releases of 2018

Read "Troy Dostert's Best Releases of 2018" reviewed by Troy Dostert

2018 was a terrific year for imaginative, well-executed recordings that cover the spectrum of instrumental configurations in creative jazz and freely improvised music. From Susana Santos Silva's mesmerizing solo trumpet to Ingrid Laubrock's formidable orchestra (and everything in between), the following choices are a cross-section of some of the best the year had to offer. Something ...

Altoadige Jazz Festival 2018

Read "Altoadige Jazz Festival 2018" reviewed by Libero Farnè

Varie Sedi Provincia di Bolzano 29.06--08.07.2018 Da alcuni anni il sottotitolo di questo festival potrebbe essere “Young European Jazz Festival," visto che il suo curatore Klaus Widmann evita accuratamente di invitare gruppi americani o nomi europei già troppo noti. Il suo obiettivo è invece quello di sondare le giovani tendenze ...

The University of Toronto 12tet: Trillium Falls

Read "Trillium Falls" reviewed by Jack Bowers

This is an altogether sunny and pleasing session by the splendid University of Toronto 12tet, which sounds at times like a full-fledged big band, at others like a leaner and more even-tempered chamber jazz group. The songs and arrangements, most by members of the ensemble (including a couple by director Terry Promane), are lush and lyrical, ...

HOOB Records: Ten Years Young

Read "HOOB Records: Ten Years Young" reviewed by James Pearse

There is something romantic about starting a record label nowadays. With few financial incentives and a whole bunch of work to do to get the record recorded, promoted and distributed, it's a wonder people start records labels it at all. But they do. And many do it very well indeed. Artistic freedom is an ...

The world of jazz is no stranger to the sound of the Swedish language. Alice Babs and Monica Zetterlund--and more recently, Rigmor Gustafsson--are just a few of the names of jazz vocalists hailing from this cold northern country that have reached the ears of US and UK audiences.

Nils Berg Cinemascope: Vocals

Read "Vocals" reviewed by James Pearse

Swedish reed player Nils Berg scours the online world for unusual and unconventional musical performances to use as a backdrop to his music. He then edits the original down to capture the “essence" of the song and then writes new music on top. Here's where it gets really interesting: the Nils Berg Cinemascope trio ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
