"Karl Lundeberg's music comes permeated with an inviting etherealness; it's confluence of composition and improvisation is graceful and exquisite...the setting of beatific states of mind." -- Jazziz Magazine

"Together with American bandleader and composer Karl Lundeberg, legendary producer Liminha has struck a rich vein of gorgeous melodies, other wordly soundscapes and gently percolating for daydreaming as well as dancing!" -- O Globo (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

"What distinguishes Full Circle from most of its competition is composer/keyboardist Karl Lundeberg, whose exhuberant music deftly incorporates a colorful and constantly shifting array of African, Brazilian and modern jazz influences" -- Washington Post

Early in his career Karl Lundeberg led his jazz group Full Circle to international prominence and critical acclaim. The band's exciting mix of world music, jazz and even classical influences landed them a recording contract with Columbia Records. Full Circle built an enthusiastic international audience attracted to the group's unusually rich palette of musical genres and toured extensively throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Japan and Brazil.

Their third Columbia release Secret Stories, was recorded in Rio DeJaniero, produced by legendary Brazilian producer Liminha and features vocalist Gilberto Gil, percussionists Armando Marcal and Djalma Correa among others. Their second album Myth America widened the circle of musical possibilities with the inclusion of the well-known harmonica player from the G.Geil's Band, Magic Dick, who frequently appeared live with the group. Full Circle's musical breadth was perhaps demonstrated to it's fullest extent when they were joined onstage at a concert in Bermuda with soul music icon Gladys Knight.

Full Circle won two Boston Music Awards for "Best Jazz Album on a Major Label" and was a winner of Spain's prestigious San Sebastian Jazz Festival award for "Best New Jazz Artist".

As keyboardist and the writer of all of the group's material, Lundeberg attracted international attention as a composer; and in addition to recording three albums for Columbia, Karl involved Full Circle in ;a wide variety of artistic collaborations with prominent dance and theater companies and festivals including the American Repertory Theater, Center Stage, the Wave Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and a score featuring the acoustic bass virtuoso Miroslav Vitous.

As a jazz pianist Karl Lundeberg has performed and/or recorded with Steve Gadd, Eddie Gomez, Alex Acuna, Gilberto Gil, Kai Eckhardt, Gilberto Gil, Miroslav Vitous, Billy Drewes and Greg Bissonette.
