In the open and free form av jazz that characterizes the group Pow Wow from Gothenburg, the music finds its own ways: Swedish and native American folklore is mixed with lyric ballads, classic jazz tunes by Ornette Coleman and the less known Jim Pepper, and originals by Lennart Kullgren. A certain attraction towards the American Indian culture is noticeable already in the name of the group.

Pow Wow is the oldest of the free jazz groups of Gothenburg, from the beginning under the name Olle Bäver. Bass player Kjell Thorbjörnson and drummer Ingemar Landén are members of the group since 1975.

The band houses two tenor saxophone players: Björn Almgren is also part of Augustifamiljen (the very popular Håkan Hellström’s orchestra), Martina Almgren Quartet, Magnus Nyström Band a.o.; Jonny Wartel is a member of Position Alpha, Tajphoon Tivoli and Migrän.
