Hellkvist, Tengholm & Johansson-Werre

Hellkvist, Tengholm & Johansson-Werre

Believe it or not, a trio without a Hammond! Andreas, Erik Tengholm and Oscar Johansson-Werre got together in the summer of 2020 to jam and it was the perfect group to use a setup with piano and bass pedals connected to a Moog synth. The repertoire spans a wide spectru of jazz, with influences from Oscar Peterson as well as Moccy Tyner.

Andreas Hellkvist – Becoming

Swedish Hammond phenomenon Andreas Hellkvist offers, with his second solo album, a fresh take on the sound and the style of the organ trio format. A journey into jazz and neighboring genres with compositions of his own. The Hammond organ is in the center of course, but his fellow musicians Samuel Hällkvist on guitar and Daniel Olsson on drums, each in their own way, play significant roles in shaping the sound of the trio. Together they create music that is both groovy and uplifting, heartfelt and deep.

“ett veritabelt ymnighetshorn av stämningar. ” – Orkesterjournalens förhandslyssning

” För en B3-fantast i allmänhet och för en klassisk Hammond-trio i synnerhet är Andreas Hellkvist inget annat än en femte evangelist. ” Lira
