”Perssons Sexa is one of the best debut albums I’ve heard in a while. If a band on their first try can make music that is so open and at the same time as integrated as Perssons Sexa’s, and so boldly confident in both it’s responsiveness and originality, they can accomplish pretty much anything in the future. A future I’m already longing for.”
– Peter Sjöblom, Tidningen Kulturen
Perssons Sexa is a critically acclaimed sextet from Malmö, Sweden. In this project the musicians has gotten together to play Persson’s compositions, which are strong melodies with space for ones personal expression, all framed by a truly original sound and a joy for experimentation and improvisation.
The group has released two studio albums, ”Perssons Sexa” (2013) and ”Vol II” (2016), toured around Europe, cooperated with musicians such as Lisbeth Diers, Lina Nyberg and Karolina Almgren and got nominated in 2017 in the category ”group of the year” at Swedish Radio P2:s jazz awards ”Jazzkatten”.
