Southern Jazz Cult: Landæus Trio

Wagnersvej 19, 2450 København
May 30 2021 16:00 - 18:00
Super organiser

Endnu en klavertrio? Nix, dette er i bund og grund et band. En tæt forbundet enhed, der udnytter enhver mulighed for at fejre livet og fantasien snarere end at sidde fast i intellektuelle stiløvelser. En liveoptræden med Landæus Trio er typisk sjov og uhøjtidelig, dog med en sofistikeret og brutal ærlighed i udtrykket. På trods af det varierede udtryk er det tydeligt, at disse musikere har en dybt rodfæstet forståelse af jazz-idiomet.

Bandet har base i København og Malmø og fremfører primært originalt materiale fra Mathias Landæus, der har skrevet over 200 kompositioner.

Mathias Landæus – klaver

Johnny Åman – bas

Cornelia Nilsson - trommer

About the members:

Notoriously playful pianist and composer Mathias Landæus (b. 1969) has released

seventeen albums as a leader. His lyrical touch and original style have earned him a

reputation as one of the most exciting jazz pianists in Sweden. Some of the artists he has

recently worked with include Seamus Blake, Oliver Lake, Mark Dresser, Tim Hagans,

Susana Santos Silva, Palle Danielsson, Fredrik Ljungkvist, Tony Kofi, Magnus Broo,

Mariam Wallentin, Sofia Jernberg, Lina Nyberg, Kresten Osgood, Jonas Kullhammar,

Goran Kajfes and Herb Robertson. Landæus earned his chops in New York in the early

1990’s where he studied with among others Jaki Byard and Richie Beirach. He has also

played a crucial role in community and network-building, by starting up dynamic live

scenes like the still influential Glenn Miller Café in Stockholm and the concert series

Underground in Lund.

World-touring bassist Johnny Åman (b. 1986) has been with the trio since 2011. He also

plays regularly with Jerry Bergonzi and George Garzone and has performed with

musicians like Gilad Hekselman, Billy Hart, Dave Liebman, Jason Marsalis, Tim

Hagans, Marcus Strickland, Tony Malaby, Phil Grenadier, John Ellis, and the list goes on…

Rising-star drummer Cornelia Nilsson (b. 1992) joined the trio in 2015. In a short time she

has made a big impression on the scene in Copenhagen where she currently lives. She

has performed with musicians like Aaron Parks, Jakob Bro, Maria Faust, Gabor Bolla,

George Garzone, and many others. She was the drummer of choice when Kenny Barron

Trio needed a substitute for a concert in Madrid in 2019.
