Inspired by Dizzy Gillespie’s idea of bringing together people, music and rhythms from different continents and countries, the award-winning and Swedish Grammy nominated alto saxophonist Fredrik Kronkvist has created a diverse mix of Afro-Cuban rhythms and Coltrane-influenced jazz with his new group Afro Cuban Supreme.

On the occasion of Dizzy’s 100-year anniversary in 2017 Fredrik Kronkvist releases the album Afro Cuban Supreme and tours with superstars Jason Marsalis of New Orleans on drums and conga virtuoso Eliel Lazo from Cuba. The music ranges from legendary songs like A Night in Tunisia, Afro Blue and Manteca in eventful arrangements to exciting original compositions with contemporary approaches to timeless Latin jazz.
