Andreas Andersson

Born in 1975 in Kalix. Educated at the Skurups Folkhögskola and at the Music Conservatory in Malmö, Sweden. Resident in Malmö.

Andreas has with his powerful sound and lyrical playing marked himself as one of Sweden's most personal baritone saxophonists. He is active within the Swedish free improv scene, for instance in Perch. Andreas is one of the leading figures in Plunge and Malmö Saxophone Quartet and has quite recently formed a trio with saxophonist Marcelo Gabard Pazos and drummer Peter Nilsson. He also has a duo with pianist Ola Hedén and has performed with Bobo Stenson, Marilyn Mazur, Tomas Jäderlund, Henrik Frisk, Sten Sandell, Dror Feiler, Hans Olding, Herman Müntzing etc.

Andreas has composed music for improvising big band, amateur theatre, documentary movies, and numerous tunes for smaller ensembles.

During the recent years he has been active in FRIM SYD, organizing concerts of improvised music in Malmö.

Andreas has also been teaching instrumentalists and ensembles at the music schools in Skurup and Svalöv and at the Music Conservatory in Malmö.

Alongside this, he has recently finished a bachelor degree in theology and has dedicated himself to the task of, with others, expressing what “church” is/means in contemporary society.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
