Updating the Jazz catalogue with new songs

Carsten Lindholm has a mission! He want’s to update the catalogue of Jazz songs with new popsongs as he feels this is long overdue.
So, on the coming album you will among own compositions also find popular popsongs from the 80’s and 90’s – all interpreted in Carsten Lindholm style and played by the best musicians in the Nordic way.

One of the popsongs is Clean Bandits “Rather Be” recorded at a live concert at Jazzhus Montmartre Copenhagen 2019 –  and you can listen to it and watch it right here!

Carsten Lindholm Trio felt blessed that evening in Hamburg: “Ganz herzlichen Dank an ein zauberhaftes Publikum, die gestern zu unserem Elbjazz Konzert gekommen sind. Es war für uns ein ganz besonderes Erlebniss, wofür wir sehr dankbar sind. So viele positive Vibes!! Vielen Dank auch an das wahsinnig effektive Elbjazz Team und die Katharina Kirche”!

Also a special thank to the audience who came all the way from Denmark to support us – Eva, Max and Simon.

Regards
Carsten Lindholm Trio

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.

Enjoy!

Carsten Lindholm Trio is very excited to play at Elbjazz this year. The concert will take place at St. Katharinen Church Friday 31st May at 9pm – and Carsten finds it to be a dream location for the trio.

The trio that consists of Jan Gunnar Hoff (Piano), Kristor Brodsgaard (bass) and Carsten Lindholm (drums) will be playing songs from Carsten Lindholm’s latest album “Indispiration”. Further more, the audience will have the opportunity to hear some new songs from the upcoming album, including the song “Spring Cruise” that will be released as single on the day of the concert. As Carsten Lindholms upcoming album is a mix of own compositions and interpretations of known pop-songs, if given time, audience might even get a taste or two of these.

The music will be played mostly in major key, and the Trio hopes to give the audience a positive vibe and a feeling of inner peace to take along with them.

Check out the Elbjazz 2019 programme here – and buy tickets here!

We look forward to seeing you.

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.

Caen’s teaters foyer, 24. november 2018.
Klaver-virtuosen og melodiske Mathias Grove Madsen, den elektriske bas og svingende Kristor Brødsgaard og de døsige trommer af Carsten Lindholm – fra Skandinavien til Boréales, Caen-festivalen i nordlige kulturer. Sidstnævnte tilbyder os, med sin trio, en nordjazz sommetider blandet med komplekse rytmer lært af indiske trommeslagere, en rig blanding af Orient og Nord.
A. Lambert.

The foyers of the theater of Caen, November 24, 2018.
The piano virtuoso and melodic Mathias Grove Madsen, the electric bass and swaying Kristor Brødsgaard, and the drowsy drums Carsten Lindholm, from Scandinavia for the Boréales, the Caen festival of northern cultures. The latter offers us, with his trio, a North jazz sometimes mixed with complex rhythms learned from Indian drummers, a rich and rich interbreeding between Orient and Septentrion.

Live video “JG” is now on YouTube. “JG” is inspired by Jan Gabarek the Norwegian Saxophonist and his ability to use simplicity yet strong expressions in his melodies.

JG performed by Jan Gunnar Hoff, Kristor Broedsskov, Mark Lorenzen and Carsten Lindholm.

Also, “Indispiration” has found its way to Corsica listeners and a review at www.rythmncorsica has been posted online. Check it out – and while there, perhaps read some of the other interesting articles on rock, jazz ans blues!
