New Album Oct 26th 2018

Skeleton Walk: Music written for a quartet featuring clarinet. The album is a collaboration between southern Swedish blues pianist Nils Bondesson and the Swedish jazz musician Fredrik Carlquist, based in Barcelona since 2001. It was during a recording with singer/songwriter Richard Lindgren that the idea of this project first saw the light of the day. Nils had a couple of compositions in the drawer long awaiting a clarinetist to perform them, and Fredrik was at the same time in a stage of growing interest for the clarinet. Inspiration found its way into the collaboration, and the project grew into a full album. Moody and playful music with influences from New Orleans, Blues meets Jazz, Barcelona meets Swedish Scania, Skeleton meets Clarinet.
Welcome on a Skeleton-Promenade!
