Jazz Suite

Jon: A+++++!! Every melody from all the cuts on this album is SPOT ON!! Probably (in my opinion) one of your better projects to date. I can't even pick out a "favorite" jam cause they're all "OFF THE HOOK"!!! Kudos to you and all the folks credited on this project. Gold Stars all around!!! Thank you for this!



Over the past ten years, Smooth Jazz fans who like to get a groove on with infectious keyboard melodies have enjoyed being “Fritzenized," that is, having their hearts, souls and dancing shoes infused with the Billboard and SmoothJazz.com Chart-topping recording artist’s blend of lush ballads and all-out party jams. The multi-faceted, Swedish American composer and keyboardist’s sixth album BALLADS showcases the gentle, graceful side of his musical personality. On a mission to “bring calm, clarity and the rejuvenation of both mind and soul,” to a challenged world, he complements his gorgeous piano and keyboard melodies with artful touches of electric guitar, exotic percussion, sweeping synth textures and special guest violinist, Péter Ferencz (Peet Project). Fritzen’s original BALLADS will bring peace to your days and love to your nights!

My New Favorite


Just happened to hear Let It Go on satellite radio. Mesmerized. Bought entire CD and love it. Will probably purchase everything Fritzen has recorded. My kind of music. Absolutely love!!!

About Jonathan Fritzén

A contemporary Swedish jazz and instrumental pop pianist with a warm, sophisticated style, Jonathan Fritzén has scored several number one albums and built a strong global following. Born in Stockholm in 1982, Fritzén grew up in a musical family the son of noted American-born keyboardist Steve Dobrogosz and Swedish flutist Katrina Fritzén. Interested in music from a young age, he started out on drums and by the time he graduated high school, he was proficient on several instruments including piano, guitar, flute, and vocals. He honed his skills studying at Stockholm's Royal Swedish Academy of Music where he graduated with a Master's degree from the jazz department. As a solo artist, he debuted in 2008 with Love Birds, on which he produced and played every instrument.

He returned with a handful of increasingly well-received albums including 2009's V.I.P. with vocalist Laila Adele, 2010's Diamonds, featuring the hit single "Dance with Me," and 2012's Magical, which featured guest appearances from Boney James, Jackiem Joyner, and more. In 2015, he released his fifth studio album, Fritzénized, which showcased collaborations with such crossover jazz luminaries as Gerald Albright, Paul Taylor, and Nils Landgren. Two years later, he delivered the mellow and romantic Ballads, which included contributions from violinist Peter Ferencz, guitarist Alex Crown, and his mother, flutist Katrina Fritzén. ~ Matt Collar
