Kiralina trio @ Missionskyrkan, Vetlanda

Kiralina trio @ Missionskyrkan, Vetlanda

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!

Kiralina trio @ Fjällstugan, Jönköping

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!

Trinity @ Café August, Hudiksvall

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".
Organ pub @ Happy Duck, Uppsala

Organ pub @ Happy Duck, Uppsala

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!

Andreas Hellkvist Trio @ Katalin, Uppsala

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!

Hammond demo @ Hammond booth, NAMM

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!

Kent Wennman Elvis tribute @ Kompassen, Enköping

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.
