ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
At the age of 25, Jonathan Fritzén made a mark in the music scene, as the first pianist from Sweden to release a "smooth jazz" album. His debut CD Love Birds features eleven original songs, ranging from silky smooth ballads to funky urban clubbeats.

Although piano is his main instrument, Fritzén has also written, arranged, recorded, mixed and produced the album, and plays all the instruments himself, including piano, keyboards, guitar, bass, flute, percussion, drums and vocals.

Jonathan Fritzén was born in Stockholm to a Swedish mother and American father. He grew up in a musical family and started playing drums as a young child. He soon added piano, flute, bass and guitar to his list of instruments, and started singing less than a year before Love Birds was finished.

Fritzén has a thorough education behind him from the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm, being one of the first students to receive a masters degree from the jazz department. He was also the first "non-classical" musician in Sweden to receive an artist grant from the Royal Music Academy.

Having worked on popular Swedish TV shows such as "Sommarkrysset" and "Sing-A-Long", and having backed up some of the biggest stars in Sweden (and also international celebrities like Bonnie Tyler, Ron Sexsmith) Fritzén is always looking for new challenges. "This has been a dream come true project for me, getting a chance to form the music exactly the way I wanted to".

When Fritzén isn't working, he enjoys things like racket sports, magic tricks and traveling.

SmoothJazz.com Review
Breezy, sophisticated piano playing and hip, stylish songs -- LOVE BIRDS, the debut from 25-year-old Swede Jonathan Fritzén. The eleven original compositions convey a crisp, signature sound that will introduce this talented recording artist as an instant star. Born in Stockholm to a Swedish mother and an American father, Jonathan grew up in a musical family. On LOVE BIRDS he handles everything… from writing, playing and vocalizing to producing the album. A graduate from the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm, Jonathan is one of the first students to receive a Masters Degree from the Jazz dept. With all eyes currently on another Swedish musical sensation (Mama Mia in theaters worldwide) the charismatic young artist has chosen the perfect time to present his LOVE BIRDS. No stranger to fame, the bright-eyed Fritzén has worked on popular TV shows in his homeland and has played with some of the country’s biggest stars. When I spoke to Jonathan, I asked what influenced him to write Smooth Jazz and his answer was that he’s been listening to SmoothJazz.com since he was teenager! Bob James and Paul Hardcastle fans will be smitten by Fritzén. The tasty “Temple of Dreams” is the first single, but I’m also very fond of the urban groove track “Back 2 The Club,” the sensually cinematic, “Midnight Secrets,” and the hooky “Like A Star.” LOVE BIRDS soars!
