Vibrant art jazz from Sweden

 


Fartyg 6 is a sextet performing mesmerizing art jazz with fondness for advanced metrical metrical melodies, collective improvisation and divine lyrics. The group was formed 2014 and have had success touring in Sweden and abroad. Their discography includes two CD's and vinyl released by PACAYA records (Den Första 2016 and Allt faller 2018), both nominated for the golden record of the year.


 

The group perform contemporary jazz with influences from a spectrum of sounds and styles, reaching from free improv to chamber and pop. With Swedish poetic lyrics as the foundation of the music, alongside complex compositions and intimate interplay, they present a very special sound of jazz. All in a different kind of setting with double dark winds and ever changing vocals.
 

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. With their  following full length album "Allt faller" they've developed an exciting original sound. In 2021 they will release their third record and are taking this even further. The combination of modifying influences from genres and expressions with metrical themes, collective impro and beautiful lyrics, they expand the definition of jazz.
