Carsten Lindholm Trio live at Théâtre de Caen 24th November 2018

Carsten Lindholm Trio are looking so much forward to play at Théâtre de Caen on 24th November.

Right now rehearsal is going on and today and Wednesday the Trio is gathered at the studio to make the final touch on their repetoire.

Below a small clip from an earlier session featuring Mathias Grove Madsen who will be playing piano at Festival Les Boréales.

Piano Mathias Grove Madsen, Bass Klavs Hovmann and Carsten Lindholm on drums.

Indiance

Sunday 7th October third video “Indiance” from studio with Carsten Lindholm Trio/Indispiration Project was released on YouTube.

Indiance is one of the songs which is less based on arrangements and more on improvisation. This is usually very popular with the musicians as they can be more loose and it always brings new ideas up in the open.
Notice the drum intro which is based on inspiration by the Indian rhythm system Konnakol and its improvisational structure. Also the communication within the trio, especially among the piano, bass and drum is very intense.

 

Piano Jan Gunnar Hoff, Harmonium Mark Lorenzen, Upright bass Kristor Broedsgaard and Carsten Lindholm on drums.

Punjab Boogie

Second new video of live session from studio “Punjab Boogie” out on YouTube today Saturday 29th September!

Last week Carsten announced he had been back in the studio with Indispiration Project to make new live video sessions, and first video introduced on YouTube was “ Luther”.

Now the time has come to introduce “ Punjab Boogie” also from the Indispiration album.

On the Indispiration album many of the songs are very Trompet oriented and I wanted to explore how focus on Piano/Harmonium and Upright Bass would impact the songs. ”Punjab Boogie” is inspired by India and since Harmonium is an old Indien instrument, it felt only natural to introduce especially this in the live video version.

I hope my listeners will enjoy the new take and if you have NOT listened to the album yet, feel free to check out the album version of “Punjab Boogie” on Itunes or carstenlindholm.dk

Mark Lorenzen – Harmonium, Jan Gunnar Hoff – Piano, Kristor Broedsgaard – Upright Bass and Carsten Lindholm – Drums

Luther

New video “Luther” out on YouTube today 22nd September

As announced earlier this week Carsten has been back in the studio with Indispiration project, and we’re all very excited to share the results.

First video out is “Luther” , which is a tribute song to late Jazz Saxophonist Luther Thomas, who was a very motivating musician to play with and a man who would always se the positive in things.

Luther is written in a groovy 5/4 and in this video Mark Lorenzen is playing Harmonium and Kristor Broedsgaard Upright bass – so the sound is slightly different from the album version. Jan Gunnar is playing piano adding his improvisational touch.

Enjoy!

Back in studio – new videos coming soon
