Lars Kjellberg, trombone

 

Raised in the West Gothia region of Sweden and got his musical training in different brass bands with very little or no jazz in their books.

Moved north about quarter-of-a-century ago just in time to fill a vacancy in Barfota Jazzmen. He had very little experinece of jazz before, but it appeared that this special style with a lot of tail-gate playing, fitted him like a glove.

He really has acquired a very personal and genuine style of his own, without glancing at any of the great names of trombone-playing. That means he has got no definitive favourites among the big names in traditional jazz.
