The Hammond B-3Connection
When this album of standards came to be planned the choosing of co-performers was the least of my problems!
This was my long-awaited oppotunity of making a recording with the Nestor of Swedish jazz. In the mellow sound of his alto sax, my own Hammond B3 Organ found the perfect companion.
We played together a great deal in the 60s and 70s, but mostly in studios, and since then we have seen far too little of each other. Rune, to my ears, is one of the really outstanding masters of his instrument.
Leif "Gus" Dahlberg
Good timing, empathy, dexternity of the brushes and a wonderful sence of fun are just a few tings to be said about "Gus". We have played together quite a lot in the past 10 years, and I want to keep it that way.
A joyful reunion! We worked together at lot, in Svend Asmussen's Quartet, for a few years in the early 70s. Mads is one of my favorite bass players!
I hope you will have at least half the fun we did, making this recording for a couple of days at the en of March 1994.
