About Cornelia Nilsson Trio

The award-winning Swedish drummer Cornelia Nilsson (b. 1992) has in a short time made a big impression on the Danish jazz scene. For the past six years, she has played around Europe with names like Aaron Parks, Seamus Blake, Tim Hagans, and Tomas Franck to name a few. She was Kenny Barron’s favorite drummer for a concert in Madrid in 2019 and in May 2022 she played two concerts with bass legend Mr. Ron Carter.

Gabor Bolla (b. 1988) has played a major role in the Danish jazz scene since 2014. He was born and raised in Hungary and has had a strong career since his teens and has won several awards. His style is inspired by the giants in be-bop and hard-bop, at the same time he has a great love for modern jazz and classical music. This combination makes Gabor a very original and interesting musician. He has played all over Europe with names like Kirk Lightsey, Randy Brecker, Johnny Griffin, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Gary Peacock, Robert Hurst, Gregory Hutchinson, Ira Coleman, Alex Riel, Jesper Lundgaard and Don Menza.

The Swedish-born double bassist Daniel Franck (b. 1978) came to Copenhagen when he was 20 years old. Today he has become a highly respected bassist in the international jazz community. Daily, he plays i.a. with Christina von Bülow and Jesper Thilo but has in recent years appeared on more than 30 albums and at countless concerts. Both in Denmark and everywhere in Europe, he plays with i.a. his brother Tomas Franck, Lars Jansson, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Kenny Werner, Jorge Rossy, Johnathan Blake, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Benny Golson, Scott Hamilton, and many others. In 2015, Stunt Records released the album ‘The Hangout’ featuring Daniel Franck’s own music.

This Copenhagen-based trio has played together on and off for three years under the direction of Cornelia Nilsson. They have a strong common ground in the jazz tradition, while also sharing a great love for the avant-garde.

The trio’s debut album was recorded in January 2022. Release date tba.
