Koncerts // Alex Jønsson

23.09.16 @ 21.00

Jaunais un atzītais dāņu ģitārists Alex Jønsson atgriežas ar jaunu solo projektu, kurā viņa oriģinālkompozīcijas savijas ar improvizāciju, ieraujot klausītājus intīmā muzikas pasaulē.
Jønsson ir sadarbojies ar grupu “I Think You’re Awesome”, ar Jakob Sørensen grupu “Bagland”, kā arī ar norvēģu dziedātāju Live Foyn Friis. Viņš ir arī sava trio “Spy On Your Friends” muzikālais kodols, ar kuru izdevis divus albumus.
Jønsson kompozīcijas un spēles manieri raksturo ziemeļnieciska un melanholiska mūzikas valoda, taču viņš turpina atklāt jaunu, eksperimentālu pieeju ģitārspēlei.
2016. gada rudenī gaidāms viņa EP albums.

“Viņš ir ticis nominēts Danish Music Award 2013 kā labākais jaunais džeza mākslinieks, ko viņš ir godam pelnījis, jo viņa mūzika ir personiska un elpu aizraujoša.” – Kjeld Frandsen, Berlingske (Dānija)
“Nav grūti saprast, kādēļ šis mūziķis tiek uzskatīts par vienu no vadošajiem ģitāristiem Dānijā” – Fyens Stiftstidende (Dānija)
“Jønsson ģitārspēlei piemīt smalka skaņas kontrole un tā sasniedz dziļu muzikālo patiesību.” – Bjarne Søltoft, Jazznytt (Norvēģija)

Acclaimed guitarist in a new solo project

“He was nominated for a Danish Music Award 2013 as ‘Best New Jazz Act’ and very well
deserved, as his music is personal and breathtaking.” – Kjeld Frandsen, Berlingske (DK) – 2014
The young award winning Danish guitarist Alex Jønsson is back with a new solo project
that blends his original compositions with improvisation and captivates the audience in
an intimate musical universe.
Jønsson is known for his work with a.o. his own trio, Spy On Your Friends, as part of the
radio darlings I Think You’re Awesome and Jakob Sørensen’s band Bagland and as
accompanist for the critically acclaimed, Norwegian singer Live Foyn Friis.
He has released two albums as a bandleader and has been greatly recognized for his
Nordic and melancholic expression – both as a composer and a soloist – and can now also
be heard alone on stage in an exploration of the solo guitar concept.
An EP is expected to be released in fall 2016.
“It is not difficult to understand why the Aarhus lad is
considered one of the leading guitarists in
Denmark.” – Fyens Stiftstidende (DK), 2015
“Jønsson’s playing has a delicate sound control and
reaches into a deep musical truth.”
– Bjarne Søltoft, Jazznytt (NO) – 2013
“Jønsson knows how to articulate breezy, moving
themes that patiently blossom into story-like ballads.”
– Salt Peanuts (Norge), 2015
“Jønsson’s guitar is circling effortlessly around simple
and beautiful melodies to create haunting
moments once improvisation and melodies collide”
– Mos Eisley (Tyskland), 2015
“Jønsson plays elegantly and beautifully on his guitar,
where simplicity and feeling precedes technical
finesse.”
– Jens Holmberg, Soundofmusic.nu (SE) – 2013
