The artists
Nordic jazz artists present a unique sound that emphasizes the natural elements of the Nordic countries with a modern interpretation. The contemporary Nordic Jazz scene is characterized by improvisation; the music tends to be experimental but melodically strong with a spacious sound and open song structures. The participants in Nordic Jazz 2017 are some of the Nordic countries’ most creative and interesting artists with strong educational backgrounds, international careers and several jazz prizes in their curriculum vitae.
