How to play it – The Hellkvist Shuffle

This the first video in a series “How to play it” where I’ll be showing some of my music and playing techniques I use on the Hammond B3. This video is about my song the Hellkvist Shuffle, the first song of my album “Finally!” and one of the first songs I composed after having started to play the Hammond organ.

National day of Iceland!

Today, June 17th, is the national day of Iceland. I was there for the first time 5 years ago for a tour after the release of Finally! I’ve been back a couple of times since and each time I love this country more. Last year I learned their national anthem and worked on an arrangement for the Hammond B3. It was finished for to day so here’s my salute to this wonderful island and all my Icelandic friends. Gleðileg hátíð!

June 6th, national day of Sweden!

This year, me and Claes Janson was asked to perform at the celebration of our national day in our hometown of Uppsala. We played the national anthem “Du gamla, du fria” and two other songs from his repertoire. For this I made an arrangement for the national anthem that turned out quite nicely I think. I’ll post two videos here: First where I play the anthem on solo organ.

Here is the full program for the Uppsala celebration. The nationalanthem is at 36:21, and the other songs at 10:00 and 33:06.

Season finale stream, May 29th

This will be the last saturday stream before a summer hiatus. I thought I’d do a condensed version of my birthday concert 5 years ago. It was the release of my first album Finally!, and on the same evening I also played with Trinity and a tribute to Swedish Hammond player Kjell Öhman. As usual, there’ll be jazz, blues, groovy beats and who knows what else. Tune in and join the fun!

Pentecost stream on the Hammond B3, May 22nd!

With Pentecost coinciding with the final of the Eurovision song contest, where the Swedish contribution is named Voices, theme of this stream is just that – Voices! And to build on that further I actually will sing a few tunes. Check it out!

Victory day stream at the Hammond B3, May 8th!

The day of victory i World war 2, in Europe that is. That’s worth celebrating, sin’t it? Also honoring Keith Jarrett and Richard “Groove” Holmes. As usual, with jazz, blues, groovy beats and who knows what else. Tune in and join the fun!

Jazz at the HQ, May 5th – Söderlind, Hellkvist & Bothzén

Erik Söderlind, Andreas Hellkvist and Ola Bothzén – three prominent Swedish jazz musicians from the same generation, sharing a love for the organ jazz from the 50’s and 60’s. This project is a celebration to the music and sound created by Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, Jack McDuff and their likes. Straight ahead and swinging, with taste and finesse. Tune in and join the fun!

Workers’ day stream on May 1st!

The international day of workers, right after the international jazz day. What a an intersting combination! Let’s see what we can make of that. As usual, with jazz, blues, groovy beats and who knows what else. Tune in and join the fun!
