Sharón Clark – vocals
Mattias Nilsson – piano
SHARÓN CLARK, sultry chanteuse world-renowned for her vibrato and incomparable tonality, has been acclaimed by every major newspaper including the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal. Few singers are compared to the great ones but Ms. Clark embodies the blessed ones who had the voices heard once in a lifetime. Hearing her live makes the listener feel the bliss of perfection. Her recent performances includes sold out shows at Dizzy’s Club – Jazz at Lincoln, Birdland, a standing ovation at a sold out concert at the Kennedy Center, closing the DC Jazz Festival plus an outdoor festival in Taiwan in front of 50,000 people.
MATTIAS NILSSON, has with more than a thousand concerts in 32 countries around the world established himself as one of Sweden’s most personal pianists with his very own voice. Nilsson incorporates the Nordic Vemod, with influences from classical, folk and jazz music. Through his improvisations and a very warm and personal approach, this becomes a unique expression and a musical landscape with completely new shades of color. It’s not for no reason they call him the Swede with the warm Scandinavian touch.
“Sharón Clark belongs on the playlist of anyone who listens to Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday or Sarah Vaughan, she is that good!” – ALL ABOUT JAZZ (US)
“A revelation… I never thought I’d hear a singer with the range, musicality and command of tone and timbre that was Sarah [Vaughan] at her best, but now I have.” – JAZZTIMES (US)
“Mattias Nilsson rightfully fits into the genre of the great ‘Nordic’ pianists, that is to say those extraordinary musicians who have managed to produce original music characterized by the encounter between the jazz tradition and the particular humus of Northern Europe…” – A PROPOSTIO DI JAZZ (Italy)
