Piano | Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 8:00 pm

Jonathan Fritzén was born in Stockholm to a Swedish mother and an American father. He grew up in a musical family and started playing drums as a young child. He later added piano, bass, guitar, flute and vocals, whilst during his formal training at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm he became one of the first students to receive a Masters degree in jazz. By the age of 22 Jonathan had performed on national Swedish television several times and toured with some of the countries most respected jazz musicians. Three years later he recorded ‘Love Birds’ and in doing so he made his mark as the first Swedish pianist to release a smooth jazz CD. His second album “VIP” (2009) spent in total 40 weeks on the Top 50.

His latest release “Diamonds” (2010) is a manifestation of the innate ability Fritzén has to weave rhythm and melody into everything he does. The album became a #1 smooth jazz best seller on and its single “Dance With Me” reached #1 on the Billboard Charts. The active touring schedule includes performances in the USA, Europe and Asia.
