JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2013 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Jacob Karlzon 3 at Rochester International Jazz Festival

Sweden's Jacob Karlzon 3 have an exhilarating sound. They enjoy winding each other up and cited Korn as an influence on a particularly hard driving song. For me they sounded best on a long slow-building, trance-like tune that Karlzon introduced as a song about people leaving their home country for a better life. The song was the perfect setting for some sensational double bass playing. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
