An exciting new departure for us – in collaboration with Jazz I Helsingborg, HIC offers you an exclusive package of food and top-quality music at well-known local venue The Tivoli.
To celebrate alto saxophonist Fredrik Kronkvist’s new album “Monk Vibes” (featuring Jason Marsalis, Reuben Rogers and Gregory Hutchinson), Fredrik is on tour with well-known American performer Jason Marsalis on vibes and popular Swedish musicians Martin Sjöstedt and Daniel Fredriksson on bass and drums. The music comes from Thelonius Monk’s colourful compositions, playful, catchy numbers which make for exciting improvisations and good interaction between the musicians and their audience.
- Jason Marsalis is the youngest son of the “first family of New Orleans Jazz”. Performing on stage from the age of seven, he and brothers Wynton and Branford have played with some of jazz’s most famous names. He has constantly pushed the barriers to take jazz into new areas and is known as both a drummer and vibes player, but here he excels as a vibraphonist
- Fredrik Kronkvist is one of the most exciting jazz musicians who plays in international all-star collaborations. Frederick has 12 records out as artistic director and his two albums New York Elements (2012) and Reflecting Time (2014) have received great critical acclaim
- Martin Sjöstedt is one of Sweden’s major international jazz personalities. In recent years he has been heard more and more as a pianist, but in this collaboration he plays bass with a big, warm sound and sense of rhythm that only a few possess
- Daniel Fredriksson has a unique swing and is an expressive, earthy drummer whose powerful playing has led to numerous Swedish and international collaborations
