Not only the trombonist Nils Landgren has built up an enormous fan base over the decades – with his Funk Unit, with big bands and alongside the greats of jazz music – so has the vocalist Nils Landgren. His clear, throaty and yet mellow voice is very distinctive, and perfect for ballads. Apart from on his Christmas anthology “Christmas With My friends,” it could also be admired on “The Moon, The Stars And You” that came out two years ago. The moonstruck nature of jazz was the theme on that record, and both the choice of songs and the list of guests, from Joe Sample and Steve Gadd to Joao Bosco and Richard Galliano, were colourful. What is more, Landgren put together a rhythm section here that understood each other intuitively.

The playing on ‘Blame it on my youth’ on that record never fails to send shivers up my spine…

Yeah, one of the best numbers on that fantastic album.

Absolutely astonishing. Recommend listening at least once with headphones to catch all the flourishes.

Youssef’s distinctive singing + electronic sounds makes this more difficult than the original discovery recommendation:
