Karin Hammar Fab 4
You don't have to introduce the Swedish trombonist to the loyal JazzBaltica fans anymore, the musician has already been a guest at the festival at the Baltic Sea so often. Whether with the JazzBaltica All Stars, the children's programme or the brass section at Mezzoforte - Karin Hammar enriched all these projects with her warm trombone sound. With her quartet with guitarist Andreas Hourdakis, bassist Niklas Fernqvist and drummer Fredrik Rundqvist, she released a new album in October 2018: "Circles" shows Hammar not only as an outstanding instrumentalist, but also as a composer with her own signature. The quartet shows a wide musical range from lyrical pieces with great tone and strong melodies to virtuosic, light-sounding compositions that make you forget that the trombone has a rather cozy reputation. With Karin Hammar the instrument sounds radiant and soft and has an elegant lightness. With the rather unusual combination of brass instrument and guitar, Hammar's band has a very characteristic sound.
"Even as a teenager, Karin had a clear idea of what she wanted to do - and how. Today she does just that. Hats off Karin!" [Nils]
