Stekpanna are an award-winning Anglo-Scandinavian contemporary jazz trio.
Mads, Steve and Petter met at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California.
They played their first gig in Los Angeles in 1996, winning the Battle of the Bands (the first jazz group ever to do so), and since then have played hundreds of gigs across 26 different countries.
They play ‘unclassifiable European post-jazz’ (The Guardian) characterised by deep groves, driving swing, quirky melodies and a good deal of wit and humour.
Repertoire consists of original compositions by all three band members, along with distinctive re-workings of old classic tunes that aren’t usually associated with jazz.
Their discography now stands at four trio CDs (Standin’ Tall; Ouch!; All For a Beautiful Life; and Starlight Barking) plus two collaborative ones (Notes From Underground and Latin From the North). There is plenty more on the way!
