New quartet without chords. From Bach to Bacharach. From captivity to freedom!
Andreas Andersson: saxophones, Fredrik Davidsson: trumpets and Peter Nilsson: drums.
Here’s a piece that Peter brought to the table. It’s credited to Joe Zawinul on a Miles recording.
Mats Ingvarsson’s HOPE
Here’s a tune from my album. With guest horns feat Claus Höjensgård. It’s a waltz but still some kind of loose samba..
Here’s a home recording of Almaz Yebio, Krister Jonsson and me (on acoustic bass guitar..) of ”For all we know”:
Ola Åkerman EXPLOSION
Ola and I went to school together and has been playing together on and off since then. Here’e a picture that looks like it’s from that era:
He was the one leading the way for me to discover jazz and such! Here’s a tune from upcoming album. We recorded live, all in the same room and then I got the privilege to mix it. ”Pure Gold”:
Soul Quality Quartet
I usually describe it as some kind of ECM-funk though of course ECM was never involved!
A Bossa Elétrica
A track from our album ”Do Norte”. Originally a jazz tune of mine turned in to some kind of 3/4-samba with lyrics by Etel Frota in Brazil. Måns Mernsten did beautiful overdubs w diverse string instruments and the mix came out very well I think!
Mathias is a dear friend and we originally met when we were very young and had a funk band called ”SEX ACT” actually.
We’ve been playing together many times since then and here’s a live clip recorded by Swedish Radio of one of my favorite compositions of Mathias: ”Love’s got nothing to do with feelings” (He’s written VERY many good tunes!!!) I’m subbing on bass and Karl-Martin Almqvist is playing tenor, Andreas Voegler & Ola Bothzén on drums & percussion.
Realizing I had never played in the classic quintet format w trumpet and tenor + piano-trio I wrote some material and recorded a demo. We ended up w NO gigs.. I should have worked harder, I guess..
It’s a stellar line-up though w Mårten Lundgren on trumpet, Jakob Dinesen: sax, Mathias Landaeus: piano and Karsten Bagge on drums. Here’s a sad tune called Donationskortet. Enjoy! I like it a lot!!
I played on and mixed (together w Torbjörn) an album with Torbjörn Righard who is a dear friend and old musical companion.. A nice track: ”Rain”, from Torbjörn Righards ”Silent Room”:
If you need Original music for film/tv/advertising I will happily make draughts and come with suggestions. I can also produce recordings of covers in case you’ve already cleared the rights to use it!
