During the recent years, guitarist Kasper Agnas has been a hot name on the Swedish jazz scene. He has collaborated with musicians such as Julia Strzalek, David Stackenäs and Joakim Milder. As a member of the quartet Agnas Bros, he has received great recognition throughout Europe. In 2017, he was awarded the first prize in the guitar soloist competition at Montreux Jazz Festival. Since 2018, Agnas has been delving into a new kind of expression. A place where the timbre gets time to rest. During these years, the album "Grain" was created and released on the Haphazard Music label in January 2021. On February 17th 2023, the live version "Grain Live” will be released on FRIM Records.


Margaux Oswald Collateral Damage is an inter-European congregation creating spontaneous, multilayered music. The constellation could be described as unorthodox: A Swiss pianist, a Danish drummer, two guitarists, one Swedish and one Norwegian, three double bassists; one Polish, one Latvian and one Lithuanian. The diversity of languages mirrors the richness and multiplicity of musical perspectives inherent in this improvised chamber ensemble.


“As PEACHFUZZ, guitar experimentalist Norberto Lobo, trumpeter João Almeida and drummer João Lopes Pereira find a fine balance between free jazz energy and psychedelic drift. "Peaches Brew" kicks off with Almeida’s bright, brassy trumpet cutting across Pereira’s simmering snare and hi-hat while Lobo, playing through an octave pedal, carves out spry and chunky bass licks. Lobo drops out to give Almeida and Pereira some duo action, before returning with woozy ring modulator tones that provide a cyborg counterpoint to the trumpeter’s well spaced phrases. On “Peachhikers Guide To The Galaxy”, Pereira plays a more textural role, placing shaker bells and dampened drums under Almeida’s breath tones and pinched squawks while Lobo plays moonshot slide licks over a shimmering loop.” Stewart Smith, The Wire Magazine.
