Carsten Lindholm – Musician of the month | September 2022

Carsten Lindholm

Thank you to Danish Music Association for the interest.

👋Greetings to member of the month Carsten Lindholm!

Carsten is a drummer and plays within the Nordic jazz genre, inspired by e.g. Esbjörn Svensson and Lars Danielsson🥁

He plays in a jazz trio he started himself, and is currently on his way to starting a Norwegian/Dutch jazz trio🎻

Carsten is in full swing with a successful career! Personally, he is particularly proud to have played with his trio at festivals in both Hamburg, Syke and Caen as well as a club tour in Germany!⭐

Most of his time is spent with his music career, but when he finally has time off, it is spent with his girlfriend, bonus son, family and friends.

In addition, he practices mindfulness and meditation, which help him be the best version of himself🙌

A fun fact about Carsten is that he has played at Vejby Stadium with the rock trio Kinguru and that he has met “Moses” in a barn in Kerteminde!
(i.e. jazz drummer Bob Moses😆)

Cool review of “Uninvited” by XDRUM.EU

Nothing beats the feeling of someone that gets it
– thank you Tommy Tulip!

¨…Wenn es nach mir ginge, würde ich mehr von gekonnten Interpretationen großartiger Musik hören, wie Carsten Lindholms Trio oben darbietet. Es ist so unaufgeregt, ätherisch, perlt wie samtseidener Rotwein tropft. Man fühlt jedes Tannin in Salzgitter, Neuruppin. Eine Abwandlung vom Original muss man sich trauen. Hier kommt Freigeist ins Spiel, der sich niemals von vornherein auf etwas Bestimmtes festlegt, wozu auch? Etwas Neues schaffen, es darstellen, ganz und gar und fulminant, offenporig und ergebnisoffen. Ich danke Carsten Lindholm fürs zur Verfügung stellen. Es ist ….angekommen...¨

¨…If it were up to me, I would hear more of skilful interpretations of great music, as Carsten Lindholms trio offers above. It is so calm, ethereal, pearls like velvet red wine drips. You can feel every tannin in Salzgitter, Neuruppin. You have to dare to change the original. This is where free spirit comes into play, which never commits itself to something specific from the outset, what for? Creating something new, presenting it, completely and brilliantly, open-pored and open-ended. I thank Carsten Lindholm for making it available. It’s… arrived
