Instead of NAMM stream at the Hammond XK5 classic

It's nice to change things up once in a while. I've had my XK5 classic for almost a year now and have been playing it quite a few gigs (well, given the corona situation...). Also. this week is NAMM week and it was after last year's exhibition that I got the XK5. So, a lot of reasons to use it in a stream!

Mostly requests stream at the Hammond B3

It's been an interesting week preparing for this stream! Got a lot of requests for songs that I haven't heard or played so a lot of new stuff to digest. The result, as usual, is a quite diverse set of songs, including both jazz, soul and Elton John! Speaking of the latter, playing "Funeral for a friend" was the big challenge this time. A song that I spent a lot of time with.

New Year’s stream at the Hammond B3

Finally we get to celebrate the end of 2020. A year that I think we all have wished would be over. This stream is all about the party which is reflected in the set list. Party jazz and nothing else. Cheers and Happy new year!

Boxing day stream at the Hammond B3

No doubt about it, this Christmas was special. I usually celebrate with my father, who lives nearby where I grew up. And while in the area I usually meet old friends and hang out. This year there was none of that. But it's nice to have the means of communication that the internet provides. Video chats to keep in touch with our loved ones. It was also such a joy to do this stream as part of the Christmas holiday.

Saturday stream at the Hammond B3

First multi channel stream! It was broadcast simultaneously on Youtube, Facebook, Twitter and VK. The themes for this stream was Jimmy Smith and John Lennon. December 8th is both the birthday of Jimmy Smith, and the day John Lennon got shot. So I wanted to honor this fantastic artists. But of course, since we are one week closer to Christmas, there are some songs for that too in the set.

Livingroom stream at the Hammond A100, Dec 5th 2020

Due to some technical issues, I had to relocate this week's stream from my studio to my living room where I have my A100. Which in a way was approrpiate for the occasion. One of the themes was my first concert on Dec 3rd, 1997, and on that concert I played to particular organ!

Some nights just about everything goes wrong, and this was one of those nights. When I was setting up the organ, a fuse blew and made my Nord stop functioning, almost. All the drawbars and most buttons stopped responding. However, there one present sound available and the worked to do the concert. Also, Erik's guitar had technical problem. Though, we still had a good time!

So great to get out and play! Ludvika jazz club had arranged for a Corona safe concert with 50 chairs evenly spaced in front of the stage. The repertoire of the trio is so fun. Straight ahead organ jazz from the 50s and 60's. Nothing more, nothing less.
