Biography

A progressive jazz ensemble based in Stockholm, Sweden - The Stoner are

* Nils Berg – tenor saxophone, bass clarinet
* Jonas Östholm – piano
* Jon Fält – drums
* Nils Ölmedal – double bass

What makes them unusual is their connection to each other, which manifests itself in nearly telepathic playing. They also use digital sampling and delay, in a sensitive and deliberate manner - much like how Bill Frisell uses the technology to take his guitar into expansive settings and cinematic spaces, so do the Stoner boys with sax. The song “Virreina Bar” from the album “The New Pink” makes great use of delay to create atmosphere.

They have never played New York City (*as of 7 Feb 2011).

    Swedes who won't come to America. I know - I've asked. They are a telepathic ensemble, and in some ways resemble a Swedish-version of "The Bad Plus" - without the need to cover pop tunes (nothing wrong with that, just that their melodies are strong enough as they are).
