OTIS SANDSJÖ

Otis Sandsjö hails from Gothenburg. He became known worldwide together with the trio formation Speak Low. His music is forward-looking, a kind of "liquid jazz". Liquid jazz was born in an era where the understanding of jazz as a musical language has evolved way beyond the concept of the previous "modern”. Last year Otis Sandsjö released the album Y-OTIS. Informed by hip hop and electronic music, Y-OTIS is pure jazz. The music is melodic and beat laden and always 'free' at the same time. It's as if the music is sampling itself, constantly keeping ahead of the curve in the musical lineage of jazz.
