The group perform music that could be called jazz, contemporary or modern, with influences from a spectrum of sounds and styles, reaching from free improvisation to chamber music and pop. With mainly Swedish poetic lyrics as the foundation of the music, along with complex compositions and intimate interplay, they present a very special sound of jazz.

When Fartyg 6 released their debut EP "Den första", it was clear that the group had something unique to contribute with to the jazz scene.

The combination of modifying influences from genres and expressions with metrical themes, collective impro and beautiful lyrics, they expand the definition of jazz. .
