Emil Brandqvist Trio Short Info

Emil Brandqvist is a recording artist from Sweden, currently residing in picturesque Göteborg. Emil Brandqvist is equally an excellent composer with a knack for staging his melodies in new contexts time and again while cheerfully, tastefully and ingeniously shifting back and forth between the Pop, Folk and Jazz genres. Whether up front or behind the scenes as an arranger for Pop music, or through recent appearances in the credits for soundtracks to film projects, the strength his compositions radiate always contributes to an audible ‘flow’. He first drew attention to himself in the Jazz biz through “Emil Brandqvist Orkester”, his inaugural CD that appeared on his own label, a nuanced blend of the classic Jazz trio highlighted by trumpet, trombone and cello. The next album, “Pappas Vardagsrum”, repositioned the focus back to his ‘full-time’ trio: Emil Brandqvist together with Finnish pianist Tuomas Turunen and bass-player Max Thornberg from Stockholm. For “Breathe Out”, his debut at SKIP Records, he has enhanced the lineup by adding the Sjöströmska Stringquartet. What has emerged is a panoply of compositions, both catchy and distinctively marked by folklore, displayed in an intriguingly meshed interplay between trio and quartet.
