New repertoire by Carsten Lindholm Trio was performed in front of an enthusiastic audience Saturday 20th November 2021, at the Theatere de Caen.
Almost 1.000 people had gathered to experience Jan Gunnar Hoff (piano), Reggie Washington (bass) & Carsten Lindholm (drums) first hand. Among them, many had been to the trio’s concert in 2018, at the exact same spot. As one guest said: ”Carsten Lindholm Trio has come home”!
The concert was part of the festival Les Boreales where the trio represented Denmark and Nordic Jazz.
Jazz a Caen, Stéphane BARTHOD shot some beautiful pictures.
Roxanne is a cover of the famous song by Police. The arrangement is a mixture of nordic minimalistic expression and rhythmic odd meters.
Due to travel restrictions the single was recorded live at The Village Studio in Vanlose/Danmark, Bodoe/Norway and Brussels /Belgium. It features Reggie Washington on bass and Jan Gunnar Hoff on Piano.
It comes with a visuals video by Tim Harris who is an amazing sound engineer and video photographer.
The song will be released as single on Gateway Music later this year.
Cultural festival (literature, theater, concerts, dance, circus, cinema, exhibitions). Les Boréales is a festival dedicated to Nordic culture. It takes place every year in November in Caen and Normandy.
It is with great pleasure that Carsten returns with his trio, as a representative for Danish music. This time with Jan Gunnar Hoff on piano and Reggie Washington on bass.
Last time the trio* played at the festival was in 2018, also at Théâtre de Caen. At the time, the welcome from both the organizers, the city and the audience was overwhelmingly positive.
Carsten Lindholm trio will be playing a new repetoire, which is a mix of covers of Carstens favourite pop songs and own compositions. All with the Nordic jazz vibe and indian rhytmics that Carsten is known for, and played with empathy and a huge expression by the trio.
Having electrified a large audience for more than twenty years, the open-air music festival “Worms: Jazz & Joy” was definitely one of the highlights in Carsten Lindholms calendar this year. Not being able to perform with his trio for a long time, the honour of being among the “Private Selection” artists of the festival was a huge experience.
Together with saxophonist Kerstin Harberecht, pianist and keyboardist Roman Schuler and bass player Gernot Kögel – Carsten enjoyed the Sunday concert 22nd August in front of a great audience. With almost 3,000 visitors during the weekend – the opportunity to finally experience open-air live music again was evident.
From Carsten Lindholm a big thank you to the musicians, the audience, artistic director dr. David Maier, jazz musician Thomas Siffling and all the staff involved in and around the festival.
