Ever since his debut, Magnus has received praise for both recordings and live performances. Magnus has not only gained attention in Sweden; together with his quartet he has regularly toured Europe with great success. One of his fans, founder of the Montreux Jazz Festival, Claude Nobs, was so impressed with Magnus that he personally invited him to play at his prestigious festival.
Recently Magnus has spent some time in Brazil writing and playing with excellent South American musicians. He has recorded 12 new songs for an album named ’Batucada Jazz’ to be released in the spring of 2009. It features Kiko Continentino on piano, Leonardo Amuendo on guitar, Armando Marcal and Pirulito on percussion with a guest spot by Nils Landgren.This selection is inspired by the samba orchestras that rehearse all year to appear at carnival time.
