About Mattias Nilsson

From the harsh chill of his native land comes warm music that springs from the rich and varied traditions of Swedish folk music, hymns and native composers. Mattias art of improvisation melts this Swedish / Nordic vemod with the jazz piano tradition, giving him a unique vehicle of expression that is entirely his own.

“…some might want to place him among the Swedish pianists that followed after Jan Johansson, but Nilsson is so much more than that.” (Salt peanuts, Nordic)

“Nilsson is more than just an extraordinarily talent”…”With this new album, he definitively places himself as a composer and piano soloist at world-class level.”…”a style that’s very much his own: warm, sensible, empathetic and lyrical.” (Lira, Sweden)

MATTIAS Nilsson, the internationally acclaimed and award-winning Swedish pianist, melts together the tradition of jazz piano with the Nordic tonal language, which gives him a musical landscapes with totally new shades of color.
