Michael Rörby, trombonist, originally from Stockholm, Sweden, grew up in a house full of music, being the third son of guitarist & lutenist Jörgen Rörby, and the grandson of priest, organist & conductor Ingvar Sahlin.
At an early age he studied piano and trumpet but it wasn't until he was 19 that he picked up the trombone which soon became his main means of expression. In 2001 he moved to The Netherlands, where he got introduced to the scene with the generous help of his friend, trumpetist Philip Harper. In present time he commutes between Amsterdam, Paris and Berlin, where he works with different groups and artists, mainly as a soloist. As a touring musician he has performed on music festivals and in clubs on 5 continents. In The Netherlands he has played The North Sea Jazz Festival, annually, for the last 10 years.
As a leader he is to be seen with Michael Rörby Quartet, Michael Rörby Quintet and the co-led Blazin' Quartet, which he also composes for.
