Nils Landgren Funk Unit

Nils Landgren – trombone & vocals
Magnum Coltrane Price – bass, vocals & additional keyboards
Jonas Wall – tenor saxophone & vocals
Andy Pfeiler – guitar & vocals
Petter Bergander – keyboards & vocals
Robert Ikiz – drums

Back in 1994 when Nils Landgren started up his Funk Unit, there were those who asked whether there was actually any need for Swedish funk. After seventeen years, ten albums and several hundreds of concerts, the question has basically answered itself: to find the most fired-up take on this music anywhere, a sound which is inextricably welded into soul, rhythm and blues and jazz, and in which all of the instruments –
and the vocals too – have an irresistible rhythmic urgency about them, this is definitely the band to see and hear. And if one turns to the pioneers, godfathers and grandees of the funk world – Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley, the musical prime movers behind James Brown, Ray Parker Jr., or Joe Sample from the Crusaders – then there’s no need to look any further: each and every one of them has played with the
Funk Unit.

The quartet of the Albanian Jazz Society (AJS), as indicated by its initials, stands as one of the foremost and most popular jazz groups in our neighboring Albania. With a decade-long experience, the group seamlessly blends the European jazz tradition with the sounds and rhythms of the Balkans, enriched and infused with the necessary dynamic energy required to distinguish their music both in our Balkan neighborhood and on the European stage, even finding success in China during their visits.

As founders of the AJS, the members of the group, besides their active presence in Albania's educational music scene at the University of Arts in Tirana, have also established the annual festival "Balkan Jazz ShowCase" and released albums such as "JalbaniaZZ" and "Kaba Project".

Boticelli Baby is a punk-jazz group from the Ruhr area of Germany, a region with a rich tradition of bold jazz expressions and experimentation, dating back to the era of free jazz in the late '60s. The genre of punk-jazz has been cultivated since the 1980s, but each artist brings their own definition and content to it. Evaluating their debut album, "Junk," released in 2015, Boticelli Baby's music is characterized by high-energy jazz that transcends individual genres. It may incorporate elements of mainstream jazz, colors and rhythms of the Balkans, actions from free jazz, nods to folk, and distinctly punk rock vocals. They have already gained a following in clubs and festivals across Europe.

"Franky meets Ella on the Orient Express" - "The 3rd Act"
the successful musical tribute to Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald by Jazz Express

Francis Albert grew up in Hoboken, New Jersey, while Ella Jane in the small town of Yonkers, just a few miles north, on the banks of the Hudson River. Francis was the son of Italian immigrants, and Ella was a descendant of slaves from the southern United States. Their careers ran parallel, with Francis Albert achieving 150 million record sales and 13 Grammy Awards for Ella Jane.

From the 1940s until today, their unique interpretations and timeless compositions of the great American tradition captivate and enchant us. Rediscovered time and time again by each new generation, who adopts them and considers them their own discovery and heritage.
