Custom B3 – New organ in the collection

In the end of last year I bought a customized B3 from the states. It’s chopped with a detachable pedal board and swell pedal.

It also has built in LED lights. Soon I will put a description of it on a page here, but in the meantime you can watch it in this video, taken last week at a Trinity concert.

Enjoy!

Mini tour with Trinity

At Nordanåteatern, Skellefteå

Trinity went for a two date tour to Piteå and Skellefteå. We went by plane so bringing the B3 was not an option. Instead I brought the C2D with pedals on plane and used only the internal leslie.

In Skellefteå I could have stereo monitors. That worked really well! All in all, a fun trip and two great gigs.

We got a good review from Piteå:

New christmas record

Record cover "Julsånger utan ord"
On November 14th a christmas record called “Julsånger utan ord” by guitar player Mats Bergström will be released. It features great musicians such as Georg Riedel, Andreas Öberg, Jonas Holgersson and of course yours truly.
I play the B3 on four tracks.

It was recorded at the Atlantis studio in Stockholm in January and February earlier this year.

Get it here. It’s ridiculously cheap!
Naxos

CDON

Also, Trinity has a track on the latest Music Row collection CD that comes with the last issue of Orkester Journalen.

Other artists on the cd are  Magnus LIndgren, Isabel Sörling Farvel och Wennerström Larssson Explicity to mention a few.

New rehearsal room/studio

I recently moved in to a studio where I’ll be able to rehearse and record. It will have a few organs (primarily my A100), a Fender Rhodes and a Gretsch drum kit. The drums were delivered yeaterday so today me and Daniel Olsson had the first (of many!) jam there. Here’s a video with a little blues tune that was composed today in honour of the event.

Trinity at Glenn Miller Café

 

This week Trinity will be playing at Glenn Miller Café, Stockholm on Wednesday and Thursday.

Wednesday night will also be filmed!
