Reed and keyboard mix serves up nice slice of contemporary jazz.
Daniel Karlsson first came to the notice of UK audiences primarily through his role as keyboardist in Swedish group Oddjob and with the band of former EST drummer Magnus Öström. A well-known jazz figure in his native Sweden, he is achieving some increased recognition now across Europe, not least as a result of the success of his own trio’s first four albums, the most recent of which - “Ding Dong” - was released at the start of 2017. In London recently to play Oddjob’s Jazzoo - a 40 minute animated jazz concert for children - at the South Bank, Kind of Jazz caught up with Daniel to talk about his career.
