Born in 1944 in Sweden Bo Gustav Stenson, better known as Bobo Stenson, receives his first musical inspiration from his family. His father and mother play, respectively, piano and violin. His two brothers and sister practice the drums, trombone and cello.

Eminent musicians, such as tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon (1923-1990) and Belgian jazz legend Toots Thielemans have invited Bobo to play alongside them. At the beginning of 1970, Stenson tours Africa with the American tenor saxophonist Stan Getz (1927-1991).

Bobo Stenson is an improvisation artist; he creates moods in the now, inspirered by repertoire – jazz, classical and oriental music. The audience is free to interpret the music, some hear above all a story, and contribute to the story by listening. Others experience a monolog, or choose to engage in the dialogue with the pianist.

The musical world of Bobo Stenson is one that is open and accessible, never fixed and predetermined
