LICENCE TO FUNK / Nils Landgren

ACT (2007)

Fusion / Jazz / Jazz Funk


About Album

A true musical cosmopolitan, he has long acquired his licence in jazz and pretty much any other music performing alongside stars like Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, Thad Jones, Herbie Hancock or Roy Hargrove. He may have been born in Detroit, Michigan or in Degerfors in the Swedish province of Värmland, as is the case with Nils Landgren; an artist of such stature that he needs no one’s permission for anything and certainly not to funk. Mr. Red Horn, a name that stuck to Landgren because of his eye-catching red Yamaha trombone, has been a constant source of inspiration on the European jazz scene as an inexhaustible performer, highly original composer and charismatic teacher.
