One year ago in Trondheim

Last year I did a few concerts with Norweigan blues singer and guitarist Hans Bollandsås. One of them was at Trondheim’s jazz festival, on this date, May 8th. Recently I found this clip from this concert. A fun memory!

 

New song release, playing with Morgan Ågren

Two years ago I was contacted by Elliot Elliot to record one of his songs for his upcoming album. The recording was made in June the same year in a Stockholm studio. Me on Hammond B3 and drum legend Morgan Ågren on drums. However, it wasn’t until last Thursday that the album was released.

You listen to the whole album here:

The recording was also filmed and the video is now available on Youtube. So take a look and enjoy!

King of the Blues – a BB King tribute

About a year ago, guitarist Thomas Arnesen and singer Claes Janson decided to do a BB King tribute called King Of The Blues. We spent a day in April rehearsing in my studio and recorded some songs as well. Here’s one of them, Every day I have the blues. Enjoy!

 

New video

On Friday Oct 14th we crammed ourselves into the new cozy place of Hijazz, Uppsala. Here’s a video from that night. Enjoy!

Guitar mania at the release concert!

The finishing song of my release concert in May was 8 minutes I will never forget! I asked all of the guitar players on the record to join me on stage for Old Gal Blues, and here’s how it went. Enjoy!

This song is based on the clip “Old Gal 57 Hammond C3 with 122 Leslie Groove”, posted at the Swedish Hammond youtube channel in 2008. The theme for “Old Gal Blues” is simply a transcription of this original clip”. Watch it here:

Hammond at the The Royal Dramatic Theatre

img_0220During this fall I’ll be playing the Hammond organ at the Royal Dramatic Theatre i Stockholm! In this production of the Bergman play “Den goda viljan (The best Intentions)”, the Hammond B3 is placed on the stage and add a jazzy touch to the otherwise quite minimalistic setup of the play. The play also features some of Sweden’s finest actors so it’s really an honour to be a part of it.

New video clip

Just put up a youtube clip from the Iceland tour. This one is from Kex Hostel in Reykjavik. Enjoy!

Iceland tour

Tomorrow I’ll be leaving for Iceland for a small tour with Daniel Olsson and Samuel Hällkvist. There’ll be five dates starting in the northern parts and ending in Reykjvik. You can see the tour schdule in the calendar to the right. Hope we’ll be able to see some of the beautiful nature there as well. Really looking forward!

Here’s a link to a presentation of the trio. Below a video from the release concert of Finally!
