Sten Hostfalts first solo performances as a street musician
in Paris, France and Copenhagen, Denmark 1986-87 led to a decade of apprenticeship in prestigious large Jazz ensembles in Boston, New York City as well as on tour in Argentina and Scandinavia. Following the international recognition of Guillermo Kleins ensemble, the new millennium meant a full circle return to the solo concert format, inspired by mentor Joe Maneris 72-note ET virtual pitch continuum.


Since 2002 Hostfalt has appeared as a solo performer at New York Citys Knitting Factory, The C-Note, The Lucky Cat, Eat Records, Issue Project Room, Freddys Backroom, Symphony Space, ABC No Rio, Gizzis Cafe, Bostons Zeitgeist Gallery and Philadelphias Bowerbird. ( Note that the various in the process related group projects collaborations-performances here will be listed as such.)

The two solo concert CD releases documenting the work was described by international media as groundbreaking, inimitable and impressive and generated invitations to academic lectures at Berklee College Of Music and The New World School Of The Arts, Miami Florida, a faculty membership at The Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm and grants for tours and recordings in France, Sweden & USA for solo concerts and various ensemble projects.
