Fri 13th, Bjorn Dahlberg, Brighton BN jazz


This Friday at Doug  Elingford’s jazz bar Brighton Blue Note, Hove actually, we have special guest multi-instrumentalist Bjorn Dahlberg.   Björn Dahlberg is a Swedish musician, best known for his saxophone & clarinet work. Born outside of Stockholm Björn started playing piano at the age of 5 and clarinet at the age of 11. While studying classical clarinet he fell in love with the music of Paul Desmond, Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea & Miles Davies and picked up the saxophon.  Focusing at first on the Baritone and Soprano sax (studying soprano with master musician Cenneth Jönsson) he added tenor to his collection and found his voice and began his studies at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.

Björn is a founding member of world jazz groups Nybakat and Lele Lele. He has played with the elite musicians of Sweden such as Jan Schaffer, Mats Ronander, Ulf Andersson and more.  Liane Carroll called his clarinet playing “The sexiest clarinet I’ve ever heard!”. Nigel Kennedy called him a “Killer player!” He has toured all over the world and played on the biggest stages, from Fashing, Glenn Miller Café, The Royal Albert Hall, the Hollywood Bowl and to a crowd of 85000 in São Paolo. A player with one foot deeply set in folk music and another in groovy danceable hard-bop, bringing his entire arsenal of wind instruments this is one not to miss!


Bjorn will have a rhythm section of Jim Whyte on drums, Terry Pack on double bass and myself on guitar.  The Brighton Blue Note venue is underneath the Greenhouse effect, 63 Church Rd, Hove, East Sussex, BN3 2BD.  Seperate entrance next door to Topolino duo down to the jazz basement.  Music starts at 8pm with Brighton Jazz School bands followed by us at 10pm til 1very late!  (Bar open to 4am for those of you who have gigs before hand).  Check out the videos section of this site to see some of Bjorn n me clarinet and guitar duo work exploring Latin Jazz and Brzilian Choros…
