A sophisticated jazz ensemble, Tingvall Trio centers on Swedish pianist Martin Tingvall. Also featured in the trio are Cuban bassist Omar Rodriguez Calvo and German drummer Jürgen Spiegel.
Formed in 2003, the group came together after the Snarestad-born Tingvall finished his college studies and relocated to Hamburg, Germany. They debuted with Skagerrak in 2006, followed two years later by Norr. More well-received albums were released, including Vattensaga and 2011's Vägen, the latter of which entered the German charts. In 2010 and 2012, the trio took home the ECHO jazz award for ensemble of the year. After a live album, they returned with the 2014 studio effort Beat. In 2017, Tingvall Trio released their seventh album, Cirklar. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi
