record is born of dreams and hopes.As a musician one constantly wants to
go further or deeper, unfold and evolve, renew the power of expression,
the interplay, the dynamics, the flow - to grow like trees, that reach
up towards heaven, with roots that sink into the earth.
The dream is to find musicians with whom you can experiment and find your
way together with. Three individual voices becoming a trio - a single entity.
The dream is that the recording situation itself contributes by being a
dream of a concert hall with good natural acoustics and an excellent grand
piano. The dream of recording without acoustic panels and separate rooms,
multiple microphones, mixer-board and reverb units.The dream is of direct
eye and ear-contact between the musicians, here and now, throughout the
recording session. The hope is that you are present in Nacka concert-hall,
together with us, being carried along in the flow of themusic.
Rundqvist, born 1945, and Hans Andersson, born 1963 are both
experienced and well established musicians who have played together withmany
Swedish and International artists such as:
Bosse Broberg, Putte Wickman, Red Mitchell, Clark Terry and Toots Thilemans.
Anders Bergcrantz, Jan Lundgren, Vincent Herring, Rich Perry and MarkMurphy.
More recently they have met in varying musical configurations including
Bosse Broberg´s big band creation Nogenja and with Svante Thuresson.
On tour with the latter was 28 year-old Fredrik Rundqvist, already well
on the way to establishing a name in the jazz world to become the natural
trio from its inception. In spite of long journeys, the trials of parenthood,
age differences and different dialects the trio still finds the place,
time and urge to play together.
