Biography

Peter Asplund is one of Sweden’s foremost trumpet players. Or why not say it like it is? He is one of Europe’s or even the world’s foremost trumpeters. Why draw a line when there is no need to? Jazz is not limited by any national borders. He has made nine CDs in his own name, been nominated to a Swedish Grammis and received the most prestigious award one can achieve in Swedish jazz, Orkester Journalen’s ”Gyllene Skivan – Golden Record” for two of his albums ”Lochiel’s Warning” and ”Asplund Meets Bernstein”. For very good reason he is one of the most sought-after musicians in Sweden. He appeared on the scene in the early Nineties. At the same time soul music was experiencing a revival and pop music began to include elements of jazz. Peter Asplund was one of the obvious but few soloists to be invited to provide that flavor on more than 200 recordings. In 2007 Peter Asplund surprised the jazz world when he made his debut as a jazz singer. He quickly advanced to become one of Sweden’s best jazz singers in the swinging footsteps of Frank Sinatra and Mel Tormé. After a dynamic scat duet with singer Deborah Brown, she suggested without hesitation that he should make a recording to show how a male jazz singer really should sound. Over the years Peter Asplund has played with the majority of great names in Swedish music and an impressive list of the international elite: Patti Austin, Louie Bellson, Randy Brecker, Bob Brookmeyer, Deborah Brown, Randy Crawford, Georgie Fame, Herbie Hancock, Diana Krall, Mel Lewis, Dave Liebman, Ivan Linz, McCoy Tyner, Lars Danielsson, Arne Domnérus, Nils Landgren, Esbjörn Svensson Trio (e.s.t.), Bobo Stensson and Monica Zetterlund to name but a few…
