Claes Janson & Andreas Hellkvist @ Musikhuset, Gävle on October 23, 2020

First live gig with this duo! Really been looking forward. Unfortunately the recent rise in corona numbers and restrictions probaböy made most people stay at home. But we played for those who were there and it was a great start for the duo.

On the starting day of Stockholm jazz festival 2020 and Trinity played that night at Biocafé Tellus. We all enjoyed it immensly! We were also interviewed for a podcast, with both interviews and music. All in Swedish, but it’s mostly music so it’s accessible to anyone.

Claes Janson @ Livestream, Hellkvist Headquarters

Claes Janson has always been one of my favorite singers and we have worked together in various ways over the years. We did a duo performance a while back and we both agreed we have to do more of the. So here it is: First official duo concert! And more to come.

This was a concert that was canceled in May due to corona, so we were very glad to do it now! Always fun to play duo, and this time was no exception. The concert also had a small service and it was very nice as well.

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.

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!
