This year’s Bangkok Jazz Festival will see a Swedish trombonist Nils Landgren and emerging Swedish band MusicMusicMusic is to make their Thailand debut at the festival which will be held throughout December at the grounds of the First Battalion Regiment King’s Own Bodyguard on VibhavadiRangsit Road.
Dubbed the “trio of happiness”, the Swedish band is set to showcase their fun mix of jazz, electronica, rock and swing.
“To be invited to Bangkok Jazz Festival is a great honour for us,” drummer Michael Edlund told Weekend in an email interview. “We have never performed in Thailand before. We are really thrilled about this. We are very curious to find out what the Thai jazz scene is like.
“We’ve heard from jazz musiciancolleagues that the scene for the festival is something very special. We will be playing mostly songs from ‘What’s A Good Boss Anyway?’ and maybe one or two well known but unexpected songs.”
MusicMusicMusic’s debut, “What’s A Good Boss Anyway?”, met with acclaim from Scandinavian critics and is regarded as one of the best jazz albums from Sweden in 2005. The band is working on its second album, “Everybody Digs”, due for release in Sweden in March.
