As an energetic double bassist and producer, Joel Grip plays a great role for the new scenes of improvised music in Europe. By founding the label Umlaut Records, he opened up for creative forms of organizing collectives of musicians and promoting their music internationally. Since 2003 he has been one of the main organizers of Hagenfesten in Dala-Floda, Sweden, a stand-alone festival, making people meet. Besides touring with groups like Peeping Tom, Kege Snö, Je Suis! or SNUS, Joel Grip's intense and personal music is heard in solo, duo or larger improvising groups in greater Europe, USA and Asia. Besides work in just musical context, collaborations often include contemporary and Butoh dancers, as well as artists, poets, and filmmakers. With music at arms, Joel Grip amplifies reality by making homeless voices heard through the organization Public Health Music.

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!
