Meet . . . Fredrik Kronkvist

Fredrik Kronkvist . . . considered one of Sweden’s finest jazz musicians, captured my attention with his superb saxophone work. If there were a need to pick a word that describes his style, I’d say that word would surely be “mellow”. That resonates very well in my book, as mellow is what soothes my soul when it comes to jazz. He has garnered fame with a quartet rounded out by none other than Jeff Watts (drums), Orrin Evans (piano), and Martin Sjostedt (bass), which brought us Kronicles (2018). While Kronicles is not his first album, this may be a great place to start. It will probably serve as a reminder of the recording that got you hooked on Fredrik Kronkvist.

Jazz, jazz, and nothing but jazz.
