Jens Christian Kwella


"Kwella is an extremely experienced and driven guitarist who has a strong technical foundation to stand on and therefore has the calmness and superiority to strike a fine balance between technique, the heartfelt and presence."
Niels Overgaard, Jazznyt Aug 15 2023

***** "…..It has edge, is incredibly virtuosically performed and at the same time exposes a very refined, chamber-musical interplay."
Ivan Rod, Gaffa about GuitarRama Jazzical, May 23

“An interesting and innovative release”
“….A party for those who like to immerse themselves in the instrument's tonal richness of detail and countless expressive possibilities. In that respect, the album is a cornucopia.
Martin Loft, Loftskammer about GuitarRama Jazzical May 24 2023







Kwella has written all the vitamin-rich music and as a composer he has an incredible number of references and a colourful palette. But the most fascinating thing is the sensitive and responsive interplay of the two guitar masters, where many things happens in the magical now.

Brian Petro, Jazz Special, Sept 23

****** "As always, it's a real pleasure to see a bunch of musicians - here with an absolutely breathtaking Randy Brecker in front - seriously embark on something they really master: getting extremely complicated compositions to flow elegantly.” 
“Also because the star soloist and orchestra play so markedly up to each other - and leave each other plenty of space.”

Ove Nørhave, Nordjyske 20.09.2021

"Immediately it is Navarro's saxophone and Jens Christian Kwellas guitar that attracts attention. They go well together with the combination of melancholy and virtuosity, tango and jazz" 

Jens Lohman, Jazz special, June 2014

“They are really on fire- with a beautiful equilibrististic guitar solo from Kwella in interplay with Filipov's accordion as a highlight."

Carl Ancher Pedersen, 2017
