Sunday morning church

I was asked by my friend and drummer Andy Miltvedt to record a song for his church, Skärgårdskyrkan Värmdö. The suggestion was “Do lord” with Billy Preston’s version as the inspiration. We recorded at my place earlier this week and here’s the result. A lot of fun!

May 17th, national day of Norway!

I was supposed to do an outdoors concert today, but it got cancelled due to bad weather. One of the songs I was going to play was my arrangement of Norway’s national anthem. So, instead of doing the gig I stayed in the studio and recorded. And here’s the result. To Norway and all my norwegian friends!

B3 Boogie!

Here’s a little song that materialized when trying out this leslie that I borrowed from my friend Pär Lindh. The title is simply “B3 Boogie”. The leslie is a rebuilt 770, with quite a few extra features compared to the original. More about that in another video. Meanwhile, enjoy!

New place for making music!

I just got a new place to practice, rehearse and record, as well as storing and repairing organs and instruments. I recently also acquired an XK5 classic, to the left in the picture. The organ to the right is my B3 -70. So looking forward to spending time there!

I invited my good friend and favorite drummer Daniel Olsson to join me for the first jam. Here we’re mostly having fun. Enjoy and stay tuned for more videos!

Kiralina Trio

Went on a trip down south in Sweden with Kiralina Trio for a few gigs this week. It was so fun! Gospel, soul and jazz. B3 with two leslies. Love playing with Jesper on the drums and Kiralina is such a fantastic singer and perfomer. Can’t wait to play again! Here are a few videos from the concert at Fjällstugan, Jönköping. Enjoy!

More info about the trio available here.

Trio 2020

New year, new decade, new concerts! On Jan 25th, my trio opened the night at Katalin, in many ways the finest venue in my hometown of Uppsala. Following us was a soul band so we decided to make our set to get people in the greatest mood possible. One hour of non stop party jazz! It was such a blast! Here’s a compilation from the night.

Party jazz for the new year!

Here’s a video from the release tour in October of last year. The song is “Just Flowin'” from my new album “Becoming”. Enjoy!

Grooving in Bellingham

I went through some recorded material from Bellingham, WA earlier this year. Here’s a fun clip from the first concert. A B3 with two 122’s, and a sub. Great players Cole Schuster on guitar and Julian MacDonough on drums. It was such a blast! By the way, the clip is the ending of my song Just Flowin’ that will be released shortly on my upcoming album. So stay tuned…

Meeting with Þórir Baldursson

In november of 2018, me and my friend Palli Kristmundsson went to Iceland for a few days. Mostly we went around meeting musicians and locating Hammond organs in the Reykjvik area. One of the highlights was meeting Þórir Baldursson, Iceland’s nestor of the Hammond organ. He had renovated a B3 in a church and we went to try it. What an organ! Palli filmed some of it and I put together a little video to capture the occasion. Here it is!
