Per Texas Johansson


(b. 1969) Per is one of the legends in Swedish jazz, not least because of the three CDs he recorded with his own band (with Fredrik Ljungqvist, Johan Lindström, Mikael Ulfberg, Dan Berglund), and perhaps especially “Alla Mina Kompisar” (1998). He is internationally sought after, well-known for his unusually skilled reed-playing and generously sensitive improvisation. Also working as a hospital nurse (specialized in anaesthesia!), Per has played with Barry Guy New Orchestra, Per-Henrik Wallin, Esbjörn Svensson, Guy Barker, Mattias Ståhl, Cecilia Persson, Paavo, Mats Äleklint, Lina Nyberg, Radiojazzgruppen, Rebecka Törnkvist, Gerry Hemmingway and Torbjörn Zetterberg, among others.
