Fred Wesley is an elemental force at the trombone and a legend of funk and soul. With his performance at the JazzBaltica Dance Night on Friday 21 June, Nils Landgren not only fulfils a dream, but also closes a circle: "I was 15 years old and visiting Paris. My brother Håkan and I ran past a record store, music came out. And, what music! It was so driving and swinging hellish. We ran in and asked excitedly what we heard. The JB's 'Monorail'. Who's playing this heavenly great trombone? Fred Wesley, of course!" Welcome to JazzBaltica!
