He has also worked with Paul Bley, Miroslav Vitous, David Liebman, Bobo Stenson, Marc Ducret, Tony Malaby, Marilyn Mazur, Palle Danielsson, Perry Robinson, Michael Formanek, Mark Helias, Lotte Anker, Eugene Chadbourne, Raoul Björkenheim, Lennart Åberg, Joakim Milder, Sten Sandell and Tolvan Big Band among many others.
Peter has toured extensively in Europe, as well as in Argentina, Azerbajdzjan, Mexico and the USA.
Nilsson's drumming is broad and creative, working his instrument often like a percussionist would, adding accents, creating musical effects rather than rhythm and pulse. - freejazz-stef.blogspot.com
