Anna Lundqvist Quintet

A Swedish jazz vocalist with a mission to challenge the traditions, rules and standards in vocal jazz.

The swedish jazz vocalist, composer and arranger Anna Lundqvist released her fifth album MEWE (Prophone Naxos) in September 2017. A powerful album in which Anna´s voice, music and arrangements creates a brand new way of listening to vocal jazz, namely, all jazz songs without lyrics. This album was a huge hit and gave her a nomination at prestigious Manifestgalan 2018 for the prize ”Jazz of the year”. (ALQ) Anna Lundqvist Quintet´s music is dynamic and melodious contemporary jazz with power. Playing together for over ten years gives the quintet a certain glow of cockiness and an almost telepathic interplay. Lundqvist writes all the music for ALQ. Don’t be surprised if you’ll find traces of both John Bonham, Wayne Shorter and Swedish opera legend Jussi Björling. That’s what you get from a true music lover with a jazz mission.
