Andreas Hellkvist – Becoming

Swedish Hammond phenomenon Andreas Hellkvist offers, with his second solo album, a fresh take on the sound and the style of the organ trio format. A journey into jazz and neighboring genres with compositions of his own. The Hammond organ is in the center of course, but his fellow musicians Samuel Hällkvist on guitar and Daniel Olsson on drums, each in their own way, play significant roles in shaping the sound of the trio. Together they create music that is both groovy and uplifting, heartfelt and deep.

Quotes

” The listener can thank Hellkvist for having the skills of a lion-tamer.” jazzjournal.co.uk

“His connection to his guitarist and drummer is on a metaphysical level and it allows this music to transcend the page and float, effortlessly, within space.”, Pete Fallico, The Doodlin’ Lounge

“ett veritabelt ymnighetshorn av stämningar. ” – Orkesterjournalens förhandslyssning

” För en B3-fantast i allmänhet och för en klassisk Hammond-trio i synnerhet är Andreas Hellkvist inget annat än en femte evangelist. ” Lira
