CARSTEN LINDHOLM TRIO

Carsten Lindholm Trio is an international Jazz trio playing Nordic Jazz with Indian rhythmics, formed by drummer Carsten Lindholm in 2017.

Members of the band varies according to where the focus is, but in common is a collection of dedicated, dynamic, professional musicians, with a strong expression – and a mutual interest in jazz music. This carried by especially Carsten’s inspirers as Esbjorn Svensson, Brad Mehldau, Jan Garbarek, Lars Danielsson, Wolfgang Haffner and Erik Truffaz.

The trio is known for their unique ability to fuse Nordic Jazz with Indian rhythmics, based on Carsten Lindholms study of Konnakol. All played with a soulful bass, dynamic drums, a heartfelt strong expressive piano – and of course, with focus on the audience.

Carsten Lindholm Trio has performed at venues as: Bix Jazzclub in Stuttgart (DE), Theatre de Caen (FR), Jazz Club Montmartre, Copenhagen and ElbJazz, Hamburg – in connection with the release of album Indispiration in 2018.

The Trio currently consists of Pianist Jan Gunnar Hoff (NO), Bass player Reggie Washington (BE/US) and Carsten Lindholm himself on drums. In 2022 Jasper Somsen (NL) will be introduced on Double bass at some gigs.
