KARIN HAMMAR

Stockholm based trombonist Karin Hammar had already notched up a long list of music references.
Alongside tours and CD releases with jazz stars like Kenny Werner, Tim Hagans, Steve Swallow, Gary Burton or Maria Schneider it was first and foremost Nils Landgren, her kinsman on both instrument and native country who nudged her into the spotlight for example as member of the Jazz Baltica Orchestra or the EBU Bigband. In addition to that in Japan her recordings as Sliding Hammers with her sister Mimi, who also plays trombone, were highly acclaimed.

Karin Hammar Fab 4 is a jazz quartet led by trombonist and composer Karin Hammar. Since its formation in 2014, the group has released two critically acclaimed CDs (2016 and 2018) exploring the format of trombone, guitar, bass and drums. The group has achieved great success in both the Swedish and international press and tours internationally on a regular basis. „Karin Hammar Fab 4“ has been reviewed in the prestigious jazz magazine Down Beat and boasts a Spotify hit (Uphill) with over 6 million streams.

KARIN HAMMAR

Jazz aus Skandinavien ist schon längst kein Geheimtipp mehr – genausowenig, wie die schwedische Posaunistin Karin Hammar.
Neben Tourneen und CD-Veröffentlichungen mit Stars wie Kenny Werner, Tim Hagans, Steve Swallow, Gary Burton und Maria Schneider war es vor allem ihr schwedischer Landsmann und Instrumenten-Kollege Nils Landgren, der die Stockholmerin immer wieder ins Rampenlicht rückte – sei es bei einem von ihm zusammengestellten Jazz Ensemble,in dem ausschließlich Frauen den Ton angaben (u.a. Anke Helfrich, Eva Kruse und Sandra Hempel), wie auch bei seinen eigenen Projekten. Auch in Punkto Bigbanderfahrung braucht sich Karin Hammar nicht zu verstecken: Sie arbeitete bereits für WDR Bigband, die EBU Bigband oder das Jazz Baltica Orchester.
