Jens Fuglsang (born 1966) is a Danish guitarist, singer and composer. According to journalist Ivan Rod from the Danish music magazine Gaffa he "is probably the Dane who has most thoroughly explored Django Reinhardt's musical universe and most persistently has sought to express himself within it."[1] Kjeld Frandsen from the Danish newspaper Berlingske has written that Jens Fuglsang "with his virtuoso and melodic, at once Django Reinhardt-influenced and quite personal, guitar playing, time and time again manages to fascinate and surprise."[2]


Jens Fuglsang had his professional debut at Roskilde Festival in 1991 as guitarist in the rock band Refrigerator Boys.[3] In the following years he contributed to several albums as a guitarist for the indie rock band Pale Imitation of Love and the psychedelic shoegaze band The Twinkle.[4]

In 1998 he formed the jazz quartet Rêve Bohème together with guitarist Robert Pilgaard.[5] The orchestra debuted in 1999 at the renowned jazz restaurant, Le Bistrot d'Eustache in Paris, and since then have toured extensively in France, Germany, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.[6] Rêve Bohème play modern gypsy jazz and have worked with international jazz artists like Andreas Öberg, Paulus Schäfer, Angelo Debarre, Dorado Schmitt, Biel Ballester, Pierre Dørge and Jacob Fischer.[5]

In 1999 Jens Fuglsang graduated as an MA in Music from the University of Copenhagen with a thesis on Django Reinhardt’s life and music.[7] He has written articles about the legacy of Django Reinhardt in the Danish jazz magazine Jazz Special and appeared on national radio and television in Denmark, such as the late-night talk show Go’ aften Danmark.[8][9][10] Jens Fuglsang also appears in the movie Fuglene over Sundet, playing the role of a guitarist.[11]
