Sveriges Radios Jazzkatt 2010, "Årets musiker": Jacob Karlzon

This is Jacob Karlzon's, one of Sweden's most prominent jazz pianists, sixth album, entitled Heat.

Jacob's music resides in the intersections where Scandinavian expressions such as space, melancholy and sensitivity blend with heat and passion - with "the burn," as Jacob calls it, and explains: "I've always been fascinated by people who burn with passion for their work, for their commission or for their sideline project, and who pursue it tirelessly. The album pays homage to these people who have a passion for what they do. As a musician, I recognize this - you play because you have to."

Born in 1970, Jacob Karlzon is already a jazz veteran. His first album came out in 1992, since when he has recorded five more in his own name, and featured on at least 40 others. He has been showered with distinctions and prizes over the years. In 1997 he won the "Jazz in Sweden" -award with the Malmö combo Blue Pages and was voted Newcomer of the Year by Swedish Radio's annual jazz critic poll.

"Heat" consists mainly of his own compositions, but also includes numbers by the nu metal outfit KoRn and Maurice Ravel, along with a track from Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings". He his backed up by his trio with Hans Andersson on bass and Jonas Holgersson on drums. A couple of tracks also feature his old friends Peter Asplund on trumpet and flugelhorn and Karl-Martin Almqvist on tenor saxophone.

Jacob has been compared with such luminaries as Keith Jarrett, Bill Evans and Sweden's own legendary pianist Jan Johansson. Jacob's playing style boasts technical brilliance, great rhythmic and harmonic complexity and a perfect feeling for form.

Since 1999, he has been director of music and composer for singer Viktoria Tolstoy's band, with which he has recorded four albums, the latest being "My Russian Soul". He is also a key member of Swedish trumpet star Peter Asplund's quartet, with which Jacob was heard most recently on the critically acclaimed "As Knights Concur". In 2007, the band - including Jacob - won both the "Gyllene Skivan" award and the Manifest Gala award with "Lochiel's Warning".

In addition to these greats, Jacob has played with many other leading jazz musicians: Billy Cobham, Kenny Wheeler, Bob Berg, Tim Hagans, Jeff Ballard, Norma Winstone, Cæcilie Norby, Nils Landgren, Silje Nergaard, Rigmor Gustafsson, Lina Nyberg, Trine-Lise Væring, Anders Bergcrantz (Jacob featured on Bergcrantz's "Gyllene Skivan" winner "About Time") and Putte Wickman, to name but a few. For the past few years, Jacob has also been a pianist in the Tolvan Big Band, one of Sweden's top big bands.
