ON HORNS - THE TOM WALSH HORNS
Just a few weeks before wrapping up tracking for the album, I realized one of the tunes would really benefit from having a proper horn section on it.
ON VOCALS #2 - ACCENT
A cappella music is something that has been with me for as long as I can remember.
ON VOCALS #1 - GÖRAN EDMAN
Ok, now this one's pretty special to me!
ON FLUGELHORN - JONNE BENTLÖV
The idea to have Jonne play flugelhorn on some song was originally conceived during the writing stages of my second album Painter's Portrait.
ON PIANO/SYNTH - JOEL LYSSARIDES
Most of the songs I wrote early on for this album had an obvious jazz quartet vibe to them, so right out the gate I knew I would need a pianist who's got that type of thing down.
ON SAX/EWI - BJÖRN ARKÖ
When writing material for this album I listened a lot to the likes of Michael Brecker, Bob Berg & Mike Stern.
ON GUITAR - CARL MÖRNER RINGSTRÖM
For the last couple of years Carl and I have talked on and off about joining forces on some project (since around the release of Luna Nueva, if memory serves me right), and I'm stoked that we could finally make it happen on Equanimity (only took us 6 freakin' years)!
ON PERCUSSION - ANDREAS EKSTEDT
Andreas has been my go-to guy for percussion since we first worked together on Luna Nueva.
So, after a "slight" 2-year delay (why, thank you.. a new personal best!) the album is finally DONE!!
I hope this finds you well & that you're enjoying the summer!
Hey everyone & welcome!
This space is where I'll be posting my blogs from now on.
Sorry about the recent radio silence, hectic times!
Hey everyone, hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving!
Once again it's been a while since I filled you in on the progress of the new album, you think I should've learned by now, huh...!?
Hope you're all enjoying the Easter holidays!
I hope 2010 has been treating you well so far!
I hope you're enjoying your holiday season '09!
Hope you're all good!
I received word on Saturday that another fine review has been published!
Ok, so I finally gave in and got a Facebook account, and while at it, I created a music/fan page.
Jonathan Fritzén - who can be heard tickling the ivories on the title track of Luna Nueva - released his 2nd album VIP on May 22.
Starting mid-next week, Luna Nueva will get airplay on aTTeNTioN sPaN raDiO.
Hi y'all, it seems like you're enjoying the tracks from my CD so far & I'm very happy about that!
Finally, the wait is over - Luna Nueva is now available for purchase!
With the release of Luna Nueva just around the corner, I've put together a track-by-track description with some info on the songs to get your mouth watered... enjoy!
Today I bring to you the last part of this little trilogy.
I figured you've waited long enough for this now, so here's the second installment of the "In the Making"-trilogy!
So, I finally found some time to compile Aron's footage from last summer's recording sessions.
Firstly let me start with a belated "Happy New Year!" I hope that 2009 will be a good & prosperous year for all of you!
YES, it is true, in early September we put the final touches to the mix & got it mastered (I thought I'd never see the day), and listening to it again just now I must say it sounds FANTASTIC!
