Johanna Grüssner Trio
Johanna Grüssner – voice
Mathias Algotsson – piano
Karl Olandersson – trumpet
Johanna Grüssner, born and raised on Åland, is a musical cosmpolitan. The singer who has created a succesful career in the United States, moves freely between different genres and forms of music but her roots are in the world of jazz. Her style is uncomplicated but determined – underneath a cool surface there is fire and passion.
Saturday night the 7th of August, Johanna will perform with her trio featuring Stockholm born pianist Mathias Algottson and trumpet player Karl Olandersson. During the evening, some of the most beloved classical tunes will be heard as intimate trio interpretations. In a small ensemble like this one, each musician gets equal freedom to improvise and shine. The trio rose to great popularity in the spring of 2020 at the Nordic Council’s streaming concert, which was filmed directly from Johanna’s living room.
”Her clear-as-a-bell vocals, assured phrasing and near perfect grasp of English put Johanna Grüssner right at the top of the current crop of Scandinavian female jazz singers… a gently swinging, highly enjoyable mix, performed with supreme professionalism.” – All About Jazz
