About Klas Lindquist
Klas Lindquist was born in 1975 in Göteborg, Sweden, and plays the alto saxophone and clarinet. He has studied at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and at the Mannes College of Music in New York City. He has his own nine-piece band, the Klas Lindquist Nonet, that plays mainly compositions by Klas, but he also plays in several other bands such as the Stockholm Swing All Stars, the Claes Janson Band and the Glenn Miller Orchestra Scandinavia.
In 2005 Klas received the prestigous “Golden Sax” award from the Swedish saxophone legend Arne Domnérus and just a few months later he recieved the Alice Babs Award. In 2006, he won first prize in the Brussels Jazz Orchestra International Composition Contest. In spring 2011 Klas recieved The Culture Award of the city of Stockholm.
My work with Klas Lindquist includes developing his website in terms of visual presentation for his many projects, and with that the general creation of his website, logo, online visual style etc. His needs included making his albums, videos, tour schedule and bands readily available for his fans.
