Jonathan Fritzén – Magical

No gimmicks. No cookie-cutter formatted templates. Just good sound. That’s what pianist Jonathan Fritzen brings with Magical (Nordic Night Records, 2012). The Swedish-American artist showcases his skills as musician, composer and producer.

Born in Stockholm to a Swedish mother and American father, Fritzen started playing drums as a child, and later added piano, bass, guitar, flute and vocals. His release Diamonds reached Number 1 on both the Billboard airplay charts and Amazon.com sales charts.

A variable lineup of supporting musicians aids Fritzen in this effort. Special guests include saxophonist Boney James on the title track, guitarist Paul Brown on “Sweet Spot” and vocalist Malene Mortensen on “Can’t Get You Out of My Mind.”
