“Uninvited” is a cover of one of Carsten’s favorite pop songs with Alanis Morissette. The arrangement focuses on a dynamic expression and the ending is an outro based on Indian rhythm.

New single “Spring Cruise” out 31st May 2019

In connection with Carsten Lindholm Trio’s concert at Elbjazz 2019 in Hamburg, the new single “Spring Cruise” will be released.
The number is a pre-taste of Carsten Lindholm’s forthcoming 4th album, and seduces us with a sense of spring and positivity.
Spring Cruise is played mostly in Major Key and the responsive listener will perhaps notice the konnakol inspired bass playing under the beautiful piano solo.



Newest live studio video “Afrindian” from the Indispiration album now on YouTube.
About “Afrindian” Carsten tells us, that it is written and played in African inspired 6/8. The African 6/8 is combined with the Indian scales on Harmonium and focus is to give the Piano trio a dynamic expression.
If you already now the album and have listened to it you will notice, that on the album version there is no Harmonium but instead a flowing trumpet from German Thomas Siffling.

Album Indispiration distribué en France

Minimalisme magnétique du jazz scandinave, richesse rythmique inouïe de la musique indienne, musiciens de haut vol Indispiration est la troisième sortie du batteur et producteur danois Carsten Lindholm.

La musique de cet album combine le jazz nordique à la rythmique indienne d’une façon innovante et minimaliste. Il est accompagné de 15 de ses musiciens préférés, provenant de 6 pays différents. De manière approfondie, le but de sa musique est de se focaliser consciemment sur une paix intérieure, manquante au monde actuel
