KARIN HAMMAR

Sophisticated jazz played with virtuosity and at times with hypnotic beats and bass lines. The trombone player Karin Hammar herself convinces with a lush, often lyrical sound. Well arranged, tight and with strong melodies, all songs are written by Karin Hammar, who has developed to one of Sweden´s best trombone players, always with constant variation in her playing.
Karin Hammar's strength is her fluent, singingly melodic playing. It becomes wonderfully elegiac in a kind of controlled melancholy. Her music is light and melodic, with shimmering harmonies and softly driven rhythm. Latin moods mixing with a proud jazzy tone. This is definitely music for everyone who is curious of jazz in a new unique style.




KARIN HAMMAR QUARTET
The quartet started as a band in 2007 and has since then toured regularly. In November 2009, the group's first CD "Everyday Magic" (Skip Records, Hamburg)  was released in Sweden and in 12 other countries including Germany, Japan and South Africa. The album has received great reviews. The group plays mostly original compositions by Karin Hammar. It is modern, acoustic jazz with groovy as well as lyrical sides to it. Playfulness and creativity are also key words for this group.
