Gustav Lindqvist

Gustav Lindqvist was born in the northern parts of Sweden and had his first jazz experience when first hearing Art Pepper meets the rhythm section. Life was not to be the same after that. He spent a lot of time diving deep into the Blue Note Records catalogue but never felt entirely at peace. He kept searching and listening and when hearing Ornette Coleman's 'Shape of jazz to come' he had to lie down afterwards. It was such a strong experience of freedom and of breaking conventions. Since then he's kept on looking for experiences in jazz that brings that same physical feeling. He's now located in the south-west of Sweden with wife and 2 kids, and spends most of his time at work abroad.
