After the great success of Harlem Nocturne, JLT Johan Leijonhufvud trio comes back with their second album on Heartcore Records “Nifty Fifty” (September 15th). Nifty Fifty featuring Johnny Åman on upright bass, and Niclas Campagnol on drums is an album of Johan’s original compositions, full of inventive, melodious playing by some of the finest musicians working in European jazz. Its charm lies in the lyricism of Leijonhufvud’s playing, the trios’ intimate and warm dynamic, and his compositional meditation on the places and the objects that inspire him.
"Sometimes in jazz it seems like musicians forget that music is for people. Johan Leijonhufvud has always been a musician who connects with his audience. I witness it every time I see him play. It is this bringing together of people that Heartcore Records is all about. Check out this album. I think you will agree"
