ULF WAKENIUS picture
Ulf Wakenius was born in Halmstad, Sweden on April 16, 1958. He began playing the guitar at the age of eleven, inspired by other guitarists in the neighborhood of his new hometown, Gothenburg. After picking up the guitar Ulf never looked back. In the beginning he was inspired by virtuoso electric blues guitar players but soon moved to more jazz-oriented music.

Since 1997 Ulf has held what may be the most prestigious spot in jazz for a guitarist, membership in the Oscar Peterson Quartet.
