It has turned into a tradition for Kwella and his trio to pull crowds to their lively show at Café Gemmestedet during the jazz festival. The Trio enjoys groove, swing, and nerve, but also values ensemble, interaction, and the unpredictable. Their repertoire is a mix of hard-swinging jazz standards and original tunes. The three musicians are known from a long line of leading orchestras and have all released several CDs. Kwella has released six CDs to date and critics have written: 'Jens Christian Kwella masters a fit and richly faceted playing style, and his compositions reflect a musician who understands the big picture as well as the details.' He has previously been acknowledged as one of the nation's leading guitarists and has been compared to the likes of John Scofield, Kenny Burrel and Herb Ellis. Kwella is a lecturer of guitar at the Royal Academy of Music Aarhus/Aalborg and regularly works all over Scandinavia, Italy, and South Africa.

Triojazz med groove, swing og nerve. Det er efterhånden blevet en tradition og et tilløbsstykke, at Kwella sammen med sin trio skaber fest og stemning på Café Gemmestedet under jazzfestivalen. Trioen elsker, groove, swing og nerve, og samtidig vægtes sammenspillet, interaktionen og det uforudsigelige højt. Repertoiret er en blanding af råswingende jazzstandarder og egne groovy numre. De tre musikere er kendt fra en lang række førende orkestre og har alle flere cd-udgivelser bag sig. Kwella har udsendt seks cd’er i eget navn, og anmelderne har bl.a skrevet:Jens Christian Kwella mestrer et fit og rigt facetteret spil, og hans kompositioner afspejler en musiker med sans for både det store overblik og detaljen. Han er tidligere blevet fremhævet som en af hovedlandets førende guitarister og sammenlignet med navne som John Scofield, Kenny Burrel og Herb Ellis. Kwella er til daglig lektor i guitar på Det Jyske Musikkonservatorium, og arbejder derudover jævnligt i hele Skandinavien, Italien og Sydafrika.
