New Music New Band!

It is amazing to be part of a jazz band! You listen, and you hear individual voices around you. You listen and you hear new things every time you play. Even every time you play the same song. When the musicians listen, hear and react, there will be music! As I wrote before, I love […]

The Work Continues!

The work continues in many ways! We’ve been working a lot with Dölerud Johansson’s new album, and we are really looking forward to release it later this autumn at a concert in Stockholm! I come back with the date! It’s been a great pleasure to produce this album together with amazing musician and fantastic co-band […]

New album in the making!

When you have the pleasure to meet a lot of people, as you do as a musician, you often talk about starting different projects. Could be a new band or a recording or just a concert.

Concerts in small places on the countryside, and gigs on festivals together with Håkan Broströms New Places Orchestra, and I played with Mats Holmqvist Stora Stygga celebrating Polar Prize Winner Wayne […]

The New Band!

From the celebration of Billy Strayhorn!

For a long time, Billy Strayhorn has been one of my favorite composers! After a couple of bars, you can hear one of those characteristic melodic motives, or a typical harmonic progression, and you know you are listening to music of Billy Strayhorn. When I recorded my album, I wanted to add a standard tune […]
