Jonathan Fritzen, July 26th, 2011

During a short visit to Stockholm, SmoothJazz Europe met Jonathan Fritzen in his hometown. Jonathan showed us his city, as a true tourguide - although getting a bit lost! We had a great lunch and afterwards we sat down on a high terrace with a beautiful view on the Stockholm harbour. Accompanied by summer sounds, we talked about his career, living in Sweden and the USA, playing the drums or the keyboards and the ultimate dancing test for new songs. What a nice way to be in Stockholm!
