Martin Tingvall piano/compositions, Omar Rodriguez Calvo bass, Jürgen Spiegel drums
Tingvall Trio is currently one of the most promising bands in European jazz. The Swedish pianist Martin Tingvall has a knack for writing bright melodies that sound like they have been around for years. The solid and nimble grooves give away double bass player Omar Rodriguez Calvo’s Cuban descent drummer Jürgen Spiegel’s hip hop background. Their recent album Vägen reached number one on the German jazz charts. ‘Tingvall’s songs are intensely melodic, yet little hooks and refined turnabouts pop up in the melodies time and again’ (Jazz Podium).
