Landaeus Trio Short Info

Notoriously playful pianist Mathias Landæus lived in New York 1992-95, where he studied with Jaki Byard and Richie Beirach, among others. After returning to Sweden he became an important figure on the Swedish jazz scene. In addition to his inspiring work as a composer and musician, he has had a crucial role in building community and bringing musicians together by starting live scenes like the still influential Glenn Miller Café in Stockholm, and more recently the club Underground in southern Sweden. Landæus is closely affiliated with Jonas Kullhammar's label Moserobie and he has released ten albums as a leader. His lyrical touch and original quirky style have earned him a reputation as one of the most exciting pianists on the Swedish scene. Landæus Trio has been working intensely in various settings over the last five years, and has developed an intimacy and mutual trust which, coupled with their innate playfulness, allows them to deliver pure joy on stage!

DUSTY GROOVE writes about the trio's new album "Into Life":
"Maybe the best album so far from Mathias Landaeus – a wonderful pianist, and one we've dug for years for his excellent albums on the Moserobie label – working here at a level that has so many things going on at once, the end result is far different from the usual piano trio album! Mathias' group includes Jonas Holgersson on drums and Johnny Åman on bass – and although all three players can come together well in a conventional trio format, they also have a way of expanding their approach too – so that the balance of structure might shift, with results that can make the group highly percussive on one track, warm and lyrical the next, angularly Monkish at another point, and so on – with a strong sense of creativity that really holds up throughout."
