Jacob Karlzon’s music resides in the intersections where Scandinavian expressions such as space, melancholy and sensitivity blend with heat and passion. 


He has been compared to such luminaries as Keith Jarrett and Bill Evans. His playing style boasts technical brilliance, great rhythmic and harmonic complexity and a perfect feeling for form.


His first album came out in 1992, since then he has recorded five more in his own name, and featured on at least 40 others. In 1997 he won the Jazz in Sweden award and was voted Newcomer of the Year by Swedish Radio. In 2010 he was voted Musician of the Year by Swedish Radio’s, and was rewarded the Django d’Or as Contemporary Star of Jazz.


He has played with many other leading jazz musicians: Billy Cobham, Kenny Wheeler, Bob Berg, Tim Hagans, Jeff Ballard, Nils Landgren, to name but a few.


The most important forum for Jacob, however, is his own trio. JK3 has been touring in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Lithuania, Germany and UK playing in clubs and festivals for raving audiences and critics. He just released his new album  MORE on ACT records.
