international jazz festival in gothenburg
23 - 30 APRIL 2016
STADSTEATERN & GMLSTN JAZZ presents: The Grammy-nominated, Australia-based four-piece band Hiatus Kaiyote. With a sound that spans over funk, soul, electro, rock and hip hop they have managed to carve out their own rare soundscape. Their 2015 album ’Choose your Weapon’ lit up the world and was described by The Guardian as “...a love letter to the whole of nature” (****).
GMLSTN JAZZ presents: The Grammy nominated saxophonist Chris Potter is described by many as the most significant saxophonist of his generation. With collaborations that stretches from Steely Dan and Herbie Hancock to John Scofield and Ray Brown, Potter's impressive discography includes 15 albums as a leader and sideman appearances on over 100 albums.
GMLSTN JAZZ presents: With a reputation as ”one of the greatest things that has ever happened to the Swedish Jazz scene”, Isabella Lundgren has become a well-respected international jazz artist. In 2012 she released her highly acclaimed debut album ”It had to be you” and in 2014 she followed up with the album ”Somehow life got in the way”, that was awarded with the prestigious Golden Record, and named Best Jazz Album of the year in 2015
FOLK & GMLSTN JAZZ presents: One of Sweden’s best jazz groups, that was praised for their children’s album “Jazzo” in 2014. With a unique sense of groove, and a joy in experimenting, Oddjob has made Swedish jazz a better place. There is a hint of 60s jazz in the touch, but just as much future in the sound. It’s neat, rhythmic, tight and playful.
NEFERTITI & GMLSTN JAZZ presents: One of Sweden's most prominent and versatile jazz singers. Rigmor Gustafsson has released 9 CD’s since 1997. Three have sold gold in Sweden, the first jazz artist to have that honor since Monica Zetterlund’s 1991 classic Varsamt. The UK’s Guardian newspaper has called Rigmor Gustafsson “penetratingly delicate, and subtle,” and she continues to establish herself as one of the leading jazz vocalists in Scandinavia.

Gmlstn Jazz Festival is an international and modern stage for high quality jazz of today with prominent artists and tomorrow's stars from Sweden and the world. One of the festival's amibtions is to put Gothenburg on the international modern “jazz map”, and offer a unique cultural experience with music, food and atmosphere. Here you will hear world renowned and hyped acts as well as the stars of tomorrow. It will be a party for your ears. This year we continue collaboration with other great local arrangers in the rich and thriving Gothenburg jazz scene. This means that not only will we have an spectacular and amazing day of music and fun out at Kviberg kaserngård in Gamlestaden, but also the whole jazz scene of Gothenburg in partnership will offer a full week of great music and wonderful bands all around the city. The festival will take place at various clubs around town. Behind the project is the non-profit organization Gamlestaden Jazz Festival and many great collaborators. The festival is supported by the generous contributions from Kulturrådet, Göteborg Stad, Fastighetsägare i Gamlestaden, FolkUniversitet, KulturUngdom, Statens musikverk, Näringslivsgruppen Göteborg & Co., and Musik Centrum Väst.
