This brilliant young guitarist hails from Stockholm, Sweden. The Los Angeles Times reports "at 28, he has already mastered everything from bebop to bossa nova, from swing to gypsy and fusion. His playing is at times an astonishing display of virtuosity." He has impressed listeners around the world with his energy, swing and technique. For his US debut he pays tribute to the great guitarists who have influenced him like George Benson, Pat Martino, Toninho Horta and Pat Metheny. This is a radio-friendly, listener-friendly record sure to create a major buzz. He has toured across the US with various Django Festivals. However, that is only a small part of what he does, as this album reveals him to be an engaging and vibrant new force in mainstream and contemporary playing. Just Jazz Guitar magazine praises his "well developed solos". A special discovery. His release also contains a bonus live DVD.
