Duration:
1 hour, 15 minutes
First broadcast:

Claire Martin presents the latest UK and international jazz releases plus highlights of a concert set by Swedish trombonist Nils Landgren and the NDR Big Band. The set features originals by Nils, alongside repertoire by Herbie Hancock.
Nils was born in 1956 and began playing drums at the age of six. At 13 years old he laid his hands on his first trombone and so began a lifelong journey of discovery and musical collaborations. Landgren has worked with a range of artists including the late pianist Esbjörn Svensson (e.s.t ), Thad Jones, The Crusaders, Eddie Harris, Bernard 'Pretty' Purdie, Herbie Hancock and even pop supergroup Abba! In May 2002 Nils was honoured with the 'Tore Ehrling-prize' by the Swedish Society Of Popular Composers for his "contribution to spread Swedish jazz music around the globe". Tonight's concert set is provide courtesy of the European Broadcasting Union and was recorded at Hamburg's Fabrik Concert Hall in 2009.
