Spanish Incidents – New Album Feb 28th 2019 

If music could be recorded in black & white it might very well sound like this new album by Richard Lindgren and Fredrik Carlquist. Just like a black & white photo can add a dreamy beauty to a realistic and sometimes even rough picture there is a certain sincerity to a naked recording where you can hear the vibrations of the room. Where some things are left untouched in order to give the listener the sensation of being right there with the musicians    in your own living room.  learn more


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!
