Trio jazz with groove, swing, and nerve.
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.
