Anders Bergcrantz (born 1961 in Malmö, Sweden[1]) is a Swedish jazz trumpeter.[2]

He was born into a musical family and grew up with jazz. His father Sven Bergcrantz was a well-known jazz pianist. Anders' two older brothers Håkan and Thomas Bergcrantz are both former jazz musicians. After finishing the Music Conservatory in Malmo, Sweden, Bergcrantz became a full-time freelance jazz trumpet soloist playing all over the world both with his own bands and as guest soloist.

Bergcrantz has recorded seven albums as a leader and on many more as a sideman. He has twice been awarded the Gyllene Skivan (the Golden Record) by Sweden's Orkesterjournalen jazz magazine: in 1995 for In This Together, and again in 2007 for About Time.[1]
