Trying the SK Pro

Earlier this week I had a visit at the HQ from Patrik at Swedish Hammond. He brought the brand new SK pro so I got to spend a day trying it out. A lot of fun! I like exploring various combinations of keyboard and pedal sounds. And it sounds really good! Here’s a version of Night train with paino on the keys and double bass in the pedals.Enjoy!

Hi-heel sneakers – in high heels!

I’m always up for a challenge. And since quite a few a have asked me whether I could play in heels, so I thought I’d give it a try. And what better song to play than “High heel sneakers”? Not the most comfortable organ shoes, but still doable. Take a look!

Going red stream on the Hammond B3, March 27th!

As the title implies, red will be part of the theme. We’ll see in what way. Also I’ll be fulfilling some requests that have been made the last couple of weeks. As usual, with jazz, blues, groovy beats and who knows what else. Tune in and join the fun!

Jazz at the HQ with Trinity! March 24th

For the second concert in the new Wednesday series I proudly present Trinity! this band has been playing together for more than 15 years is is one of the cornerstones of my musical life. Three skilled and distinguished musicians, that together form a trinity in the true sense of the word. A union greater than the sum of its parts. Communication, playfulness and dedication are always key elements of a performance.

Spring equinox livestream on March 20th!

This Saturday is the very date for the spring equinox. A point of balance between light and dark. A day of unity in the sense that day and night is equally long all across the globe. And here on the northern hemisphere – we’re also heading towards lighter times!

New concert series!

Starting today, Wednesday March 10th, there will be a livestreamed jazz concert every pther wednesday at 8pm CET! My solostreams will continue as usual and this will be more about the bands I play with. First up is a trio that was formed last year. A “corona project” if you will. And for once I don’t play the organ, but piano with bass pedal. The other members are Erik Tengholm on trumpet and Oscar Johansson-Werre on drums.

Most welcome!

Blue velvet stream on March 6th!

Yes, blues will be one ofthe theme but also a whole lot of other stuff. Jazz, blues, groovy beats and who knows what else. Tune in and join the fun!

Hymn to freedom (full version)

About a year ago I put up a video with a short version of Hymn to Freedom by Oscar Peterson. It’s one of my favorite songs and it has been with me almost since I started playing. Many has requested a full version so now, a year later I thought it might be a good time to get that out. Had a little session in the studio yesterday and this is what came out. Enjoy!
