Pontus de Wolfe

Long-time artist & musician, based in Stockholm, Sweden. I've released several solo pop records in both Swedish and English through the years, the last one - “Blood Orange” released in 2019. I've also written a musical, worked with music for stage and TV.

I founded “Jazzagenturen” in 2013 as a booking agency / network of jazz musicians and bands, with a focus on delivering traditional live jazz of the very best quality to the city's concert halls, clubs as well as private events and parties.

During the Covid -19 crisis, I gathered 20 of Jazzagenturen's most frequent players in three ensembles and recorded them during a 12 hour non stop session on 2 april 2020, resulting in 50 sprawling songs in total. These recordings will be released in 5 volumes with spread over 2020-21, under the name “The Stockholm Corona Sessions”. A separate “Best of” vinyl set will be released in 2021.

These recordings were made in order to compensate these amazing musicians during a time when nearly all of their work was taken away from them. In the collective spirit of Jazzagenturen, all royalties and contributions will be split equally between all of its participants, as a symbol of our dependence of each other when it comes to holding each others backs during difficult times, as well as creating great 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!
