And so, the third and last stream of the day was Apan & Grisen, that is, me and Daniel Olsson. Thomas Arnesen also joined for a few songs towards the end. We played mostly my songs. Great fun!
The second stream of the day was Claes Janson with Arnesen Bluesband. Similiar repertoire as the night before. Some blues and some more solemn songs. Beautiful Swedish lyrics by Hans Widmark.
One my my "Corona projects" was to pratice playing the piano with bass pedals. During the summer, me, Erik Tengholm and Oscar Johansson Werre formed a trio around this concert. here's our first live performance.
Great to play with Claes and Arnesen bluesband again! We did mostly material from Claes' latest album "Ett ord till mina polare".
It seems that there's a longing for music during this cultural winter of corona. A nice ending to the summer, and let's hope for a fall with less restricitions!
Last time we were in Hallstavik, 13 years ago, my organ had problems so I had to switch to the piano in the middle of the concert. Luckily it didn't happen this time and we had a very nice concert doing jazz and poetry.
Dispite corona, Glenn Mille Café has managed to keep holding concerts. So nice that some things almost stay the same!
Church service with a lot of music. Beautifully located in the middle of nowhere, but actually not that from from home!
A new acquaintance , singer Annamaria Andersson. We had a lot of fun, playing music greatly influenced by Ernestine Anderson.
15-year anniversary! This concert marks, to the exact day, our 15th anniversary as a trio. Our first concert was on July 18th 2005, in Uppsala. A special occasion, to say the least.
Always fun with new jazz venues in ones hometown! This one - cozy hotel lobby. Hope to be back! Photo: Palli Kristmundsson
Tours are rare in these times, but Trinity managed to get three gigs in one week. What a treat! Things almost seemed normal again.
Church service out in the garden! Me and Kiralina Salandy were guest artists, and I had the great pleasure to play together with Jonathan Alfredsson and Alphonse Lovelace.
A day of rehearsing, recording and performing at Jojo's place in Blidö. Unfortunately we had to cut the concert a little short due rain, but up until then it was a really nice day!
A delayed birthday present for the parents in law for a friend of mine. First gig with my XK5 Classic. I paired it with my Leslie 770. It worked out very well! Hope to do more of these gigs during summer.
After a month of canceled gigs it was so refreshing to to a livestream with Kiralina Trio! I brought the B3 and two leslies, just for fun.
A modern, spacious church. Missionskyrkan in Vetlanda offered great acoustics. The songs kind of danced around in the room - as did Kiralina in some songs!
How I have longed to get out with this trio again! Kiralina is such an amazing singer and performer and me and Jesper Kviberg have so much fun playing and accompanying. Brought the B3 with two leslies. Such a good looking setup!
Last night of the tour, in Härnösand. Nice place that a hadn't seen before. Great sound and a fun way to end the tour.
It was 6 years ago that we made this tour route last time. Some things don't change, and some do. Unfortunately the jazz club has closed down but we could play at the same place as last time anyway. It even looked a little nicer!
Always happy to have a few days on the road with Trinity. We started off in Sundsvall. So fun to play the songs from the latest album "Nuages".
Happy Duck is one of my favorite places in my hometown Uppsala. It's a kind of a hole in the wall pub, and when you enter it feels a little like an episode of Cheers. There's always someone there that you know, and most often you make a few more friends in an evening. This was the eve of Valentine's day, so naturally the event was called "Hammond for love". I relly love doing this kind of stuff!
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!
The organ hug is back! So nice to play with the trio again. Samuel came from Copenhagen earlier in the day and we went straight to Gävle.
First Trinity gig of the year! Lunch concert in Tyrsö, south of Stockholm. I was still quite tired from jetlag but it was fun, as always!
NAMM is such an experience! I was there as an artist for Hammond USA, and did a few demo spots at their booth, playing the XK5. There were also some cool jams. And then of course everything else that happens there. All the people you meet, instruments and other things,. Amazing!
There's often a lot of Elvis events in the beginning of each year because of his birthday on Jan 8th. This year I think he turned 85. Guest artist this night was Jan Johansen, that I haven't played with before. A vrey nice acquaintance! On of the highlights was when In the ghetto suddenly mophed into his hit "Se på mig".
My first Norwegian Christmas concert! We did 3 shows in one day. Most of them with the trio, but some with guest artists. So nice and warm!
As usual, GMC is always a lot of fun. My friend and colleague Max Lorentz was in the audience and took this awesome photo.
New musical acquaintances! I've known about Per Thornberg for a long time. I even used some of his educational material many years ago . But I never met him. So, when asked to sub in his trio, I gladly excepted.
