Wistrand/Rytzler Quartet was formed in September 2008 after Stefan Wistrand had been approached with the proposition of playing jazz music at a wedding. Tunes composed by Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk were the foundation for the first gig. The wedding gig turned out to be a success and the quartet decided to continue playing together. Since the first gig the quartet’s repertoire has grown to be mostly of their own writing. A group within the group is the duo of Wistrand and Rytzler.
