Playing with the trio

It’s been a fun summer! Though it’s not over yet, I think one of the things I will remember will be the concert on Monday July 31st, at Atelje Y, in Stora Skedvi, a village not too far from where I grew up. The venute itself is an old cinema for silent movies and has in recent years been turned into an arts studio and concert hall. And it is truly a beautiful place, inspiring in many different ways. And we had a lot of fun playing! 

Here you can read more about the trio:

Here’s a video compilation from the concert. About one minute from each song. Enjoy!

 

Last year’s birthday concert

Here are some videos from last year’s birthday concert, one from each concert of the night. They are, in order from buttom up: Trinity playing my song Memories of lost love, A tribute to Kjell Öhman playing I’m walking and at the top, me Thomas Arnesen and Daniel Olsson playing the ending of Up and away. Enjoy!

 

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.
