JAZZPAR Artists - Fredrik Lundin

Fredrik Lundin (DK), b. 1963, was leading his own trio featuring Joakim Milder and Paul Bley at the very first JAZZPAR Event in 1990. Lundin was also part of Jørgen Emborg Quintet feat. Steve Swallow at The JAZZPAR Event 1992. At the JAZZPAR Event 2001 Lundin performed as featured soloist with Marilyn Mazur's groups.

In 1990 Fredrik Lundin could be called the young Danish jazz musician deserving wider recognition.

He is not only an extremely talented, expressionistic saxophone and flute player but also a dedicated composer, arranger and bandleader. His music reveals inspiration all the way from Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young through Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane to Archie Shepp and Ornette Coleman - from Danish folk music to Argentine tango.

Lundin draws on a wide specter when he has played with Steve Swallow, NHP, Palle Danielsson and all the Scandinavian musicians who have taken part in his influential groups. Lundin has often worked with and composed for semi-large orchestras, lately in the field traditionally called Third-Stream.

Today Lundin has received considerable recognition through scholarships, prizes and grants. He has recorded a handful of records in his own name and is sideman on dozens of releases.
