Since 20 years Johannes has been working within the genres of modern jazz, improvised and contemporary music as a professional double-bass player and teacher. He has toured frequently in several different countries in Europe, as well as Brazil, Vietnam, Gambia, Mali and USA and he have appeared on 39 recordings. He’s curiosity and urge to go deeper in the music as a double bass player and as an Improviser has brought him together with several musicians and dancers around the world. Agustí Fernández, Joe Morris, Ramon Lopez, Albert Cirera, Stefan Östersjö, Núria Andorrà, Kresten Osgood, Nguyễn Thanh Thủy, Martin Küchen, Håkon Berre, Sture Ericson, Fred Lonberg Holm, Lotte Anker, Ståle Liavik & Vasco Trilla are just some of them. He has got four Contemporary solo & duo pieces dedicated to him by Henrik Denerin, Stefan Pöntinen & Jonatan Sersam

“His bass playing naturally finds the important common denominators, and composition-wise, every ingredient serves its purpose.”
Johannes Cornell; Dagens Nyheter (Sweden’s most influential newspaper)

“Nästesjö is extremely confident with his compositions, which is shown through his sensitive and excellent bass playing”
Stefan Nilsson; Nerikes Allehanda (newspaper)

“It’s not the instrumentation in itself that makes the music interesting – double bass, violin, glockenspiel and baritone saxophone should, by the way, meet more often – it’s rather Johannes Nästesjö’s inventive compositions and his brilliant arrangement skills.”
Peter Bornemar; Dig Jazz (jazz magazine)
