Susanna Risberg

Hon har kallats “en av Sveriges mest intressanta gitarrister” i DN och “truly worthy of inclusion in any discussion about important contemporary jazz guitarist” i All About Jazz.

Den flerfaldigt prisbelönta och jazzgitarristen och kompositören har en lång karriär bakom sig med fyra skivor i eget namn “Susanna Risberg Trio” (2013), “Utfall” (2015), “Vilddjur” (2018) samt CAM Jazz-debuten från i år, ”Boiler Room” (2021). Susanna har studerat vid Kungl. Musikhögskolan i Stockholm, samt i unga år vid Berklee College of Music där hon vann det prestigefyllda “Jimi Hendrix Award ’11”. År 2015 tilldelades hon Sveriges Radio P2’s pris “Jazzkatten” som “Årets Nykomling”.
Idag har Susanna turnerat världen runt som solist och bandledare, spelat med musiker och ensembler som Nils Landgren, Maria Schneider, Svante Thuresson, Marit Bergman, Göteborgs Symfoniker, Blue House Jazz Orchestra för att nämna några. Hon har skrivit musik till bl.a. The Gothenburg Combo, Ellen Nisbeth och teaterföreställningen “Leif” (Leif Andrée, Ole Anders Tandberg). Årerts jazzfestival till ära gör hon en solokonsert, vilket är något gitarristen tidigare gjort på bl.a. Ljubljana Jazz Festival, International Jazz Day in Myanmar, Sibiu International Jazz Competetion (winner of ”Composition Prize” 2019).

“Special kudos go out to the sensational young Swedish guitarist Susanna Risberg, who—as heard here with her trio—worked imaginatively within a clean-toned jazz guitar approach. Most importantly, she captured our attention with her unpredictable, nuanced musicality.” – Josef Woodard, Downbeat Magazine

“The continually arresting playing on Vilddjur makes the case for Risberg as an original voice. Technically impressive and emotionally persuasive, Risberg is above all an exciting guitarist who dares to plot her own course. With Viddjur, Risberg is truly worthy of inclusion in any discussion about important contemporary jazz guitarists.” – Ian Patterson, All About Jazz

”Guitarist Susanna Risberg emerged on the scene as a singular musical talent, playing off-centre melodies with no desire to flare and flash. Her thoughtful compositions aren’t intellectual puzzles, though, but rewarding and involving themes that blend movement with periods of stillness and silence, virtuosity with a directness of approach rare in contemporary players. Working with bassist Arvid Jullander and drummer Karl-Henrik Ousbäck, she now delivers her CAM JAZZ debut Boiler Room, a set of nine originals and highly imaginative covers that take her career a further step towards international recognition. Alongside her own and band compositions, Risberg tackles themes by the great Sam Rivers, Donny McCaslin, Jim Beard and even a song associated with Janis Joplin… Captured in pristine sound, this is one of the genuinely exciting contemporary jazz groups.” – Brian Morton
