Magnus Öström - drums, Andreas Hourdakis - guitars, Adam Forkelid - piano & keys, Thobias Gabrielson - bass

A member of world famous Esbjörn Svensson Trio (e.s.t.), the drummer Magnus Öström

"Öström’s compositions cut across style and genre, going where the mood takes him...cinematic post-rock and an unmistakable prog tang.” PROG Magazine

“...a refreshingly unique sound of its own.” Rhythm

“...hypnotic, dance-inflected grooves...” Irish Times

Magnus is set to release his third solo album entitled Parachute on 1 April. His solo career has been a fruitful one with two solo albums released all over Europe and Japan and his debut, Thread Of Life nominated for a Swedish Grammis and also earning him an Echo Jazz Award in Germany. He has also collaborated with Pat Metheny who appeared on Thread of Life.

The new album features the same band members as the two previous albums: Andreas Hourdakis, guitars; Thobias Gabrielson, bass & keys; Daniel Karlsson, piano & keys, and arrives in full-circle back to the label Diesel Music where Magnus' career got started with e.s.t. (it's now 20 years since the hugely successful and critically acclaimed album e.s.t. Plays Monk was released). Parachute comprises eight original compositions by Magnus and also features the amazing Norwegian trumpet player Mathias Eick who guests on The Shore Of Unsure.

In Magnus’ own words: “The meaning of Parachute in this context is that however many tough times you have in life or even if you feel that you are in a free fall in life, the music is always catching me like a Parachute. This album is a celebration of the positive power and energy of the music itself."


Supporting Artist/Band

Support: Al Cherry Quartet!

Al Cherry Quartet: Al Cherry - guitar, Sam Burgess - bass, Chris Higgingbottom - drums and Ross Stanley (25/04) / James Pearson (26/04) - piano.

‘Al Cherry is a genius at creating the right setting’ (The Times)

'Guitarist Al Cherry outstanding all night' (Financial Times, Ronnie Scotts gig review)

Al Cherry is one of the most in-demand guitarists on the London jazz and blues circuit today. He has many years of performance and studio experience, has made numerous TV appearances, and has toured internationally with a variety of bands.

As well as regular appearances fronting his own band at Ronnie Scotts, artists he currently works with include Natalie Williams, Guy Barker, Gwyneth Herbert, Carleen Anderson, Marti Pellow and Lisa Stansfield. He has also appeared on countless albums and recordings over the years.

He was recently a featured soloist in Guy Barker’s band for Paloma Faith’s electric prom at The Albert Hall, which was a live national BBC television broadcast. He also appeared recently in the house band for the national TV broadcast of the Eurovision 60th anniversary concert.

He started playing guitar aged 4 years old, developing an early interest in Blues and Jazz. At the age of 13 he was awarded a scholarship by Fender, and as a result was the subject of a BBC documentary. He went on to gain a first class Honours degree in Jazz and Classical guitar from the Guildhall.

His playing draws on an eclectic mix of influences from Jazz and Blues to Country, and his quartet features his own unique take on standards from the jazz repertoire, as well as versions of songs by artists from Stevie Wonder to Bob Dylan.
