Oscar Utterstrom

Trombonist Oscar Utterström plays his horn with a warm and sensitive tone. Mixing straight ahead jazz with elements of rock and electronica, the Oscar’s music is the ultimate experience in improvised music. Oscar's writing mixes his Swedish roots with the American and world music, giving the finished product a unique sound. To top things off, the use of electric trombone and a DJ makes this group one of the most exciting groups on the scene today. Their second CD Departure was released in March of 2012.

Oscar is also an active arranger, having written horn arrangements for many different artists including My Morning Jacket (Bonnaroo and New Years Eve at Madison Square Garden), Canadian superstar Johnny Reid (recordings, live DVD), and Nashville Jazz Orchestra. Oscar started playing the trombone at the age of ten. He began his musical career at the music school in Växjö. When Oscar was twelve, he moved with his family to Belgium where he continued playing in various bands, including blues bands, concert bands and fanfare orchestras....

”Home moves in a sofisticated jazzrock, electronic sphere and surprises in its musical solutions......Utterstrom has an outmost elegant, graceful tone, which he manipulates, turns inside out, and challenges throughout the album. Oscar Utterstrom has an unpredictability that is very pleasing.... - Ulf Thelander, Orkester Journalen (Sweden)

“Everything is tastefully beautiful in a relaxed, lyrical sphere. The soft sounds from the Fender Rhodes blend well with Oscar's well crafted tone.” - Göran Olson, DIG Jazz (Sweden)

”[Oscar's trombone playing is]...a little bit like Hendrix, with bluesy glisses, and cool electronic effects.” - Sven Bertilsson, Katrineholms Kuriren (Sweden)
