Jazz i Jemtland - Svante Söderqvist Trio

Location: Östersund city
Category: Music
Date: Tuesday 25 oct 2022

During his 20 years as a professional musician, bassist and cellist Svante Söderqvist has made himself known as one of Sweden's foremost jazz bassists. Over the years, he has worked and recorded records with a wide range of Swedish jazz artists and musicians, including Rigmor Gustafsson, Margareta Bengtson, Nils Landgren, Magnus Lindgren, Claes Jansson, Carin Lundin, Joakim Milder, Mathias Algotsson, Klas Lindquist and others. In addition, he has been employed as a jazz musician at Estrad Norr in Jämtland and participated in musical theater performances at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern in Stockholm and at Uppsala Stadsteater.

In 2018, the first own group, the Svante Söderqvist Trio, was started, and in addition to the double bass, he also plays his original main instrument, the cello, here to a great extent. With him are longtime colleagues Adam Forkelid and Calle Rasmusson on piano and drums/percussion, respectively. The trio has played together in many different constellations over many years, which means that the group is very coordinated.

The music is mainly composed by Söderqvist, with a clear melodic and rhythmic starting point and with elements in addition to jazz from both folk music and classical music. Both Forkelid and Rasmusson make a big creative mark in the shaping of the music through dazzling musicality and playing skill. By using strings on both double bass and cello and also singing, Söderqvist creates a multifaceted solo expression, which makes the jazz trio format feel both varied and innovative. In March 2020, the debut album Arrival was released on the record label Prophone/Naxos, and the record has been received extremely well by both reviewers and audiences.
