Viktoria Tolstoy’s timing and phrasing are the epitome of jazz! Jacob Karlzon is one of Sweden’s foremost jazz pianists and accompanists. Together, the duo treat us to an intense yet intimate evening that makes every note count.

While Viktoria Tolstoy claims she’s “just a singer”, her voice has been compared to a primordial force of rhythm. Others have pointed out the way her sound resembles that of trumpetists and saxophonists, praising the natural way she approaches any song.

Jacob Karlzon has crafted an entirely unique way of expressing himself, with “a Nordic touch and the swingiest of swing”. Or, to quote Georg Riedel: “Sound-wise and rhythm-wise, Jacob is complex in a way his generation rarely is, which is extremely inspiring.”

Together, the pair cherry-picks music from different genres, just as happy to leave their mark on a well-chosen pop song as they are to perform a timeless classic. The result is pure magic.
