Tobias Wiklund

”Where The Spirits Eat” is the first album by the Tobias Wiklund Quartet.

It was recorded on analog tape in beautiful acoustic settings at ”the Village Studios”, Copenhagen. The album features nine completely new compositions by Tobias and two exciting arrangements of songs written by Louis Armstrong.

What defines the sound of TWQ, is the balance between introspective presence and the power of expression. The belief that music is built on the togetherness of the group instead of a single artist can clearly be heard on this debut album.

With some of the most talented, young musicians on the Scandinavian jazz scene, the band expresses a mix of the American traditional jazz and progressive European avant-garde. Pianist Simon Toldam (DK), drummer Daniel Fredriksson (SE), basist Lasse Mørck (DK) and cornetist Tobias Wiklund forms a unit that at the drop of a hat switches from the melodic lines of Ornette Coleman to the swinging eight notes of Thelonius Monk.

With this strong debut the TWQ sets to be a rising star on the European jazz scene.

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!
