New album is coming!
The record is called Alternative Source of Energy and is the third in a row with my nine-piece band, Klas Lindquist Nonet (Lift Off 2008, You Need It 2010). Just like on previous records, the focus is on me as composer and arranger.

The music, which is specially written for the band’s members such as the trumpeters Karl Olandersson and Nils Janson and the saxophonists Fredrik Lindborg and Robert Nordmark, is full of energy but also well balanced, where the six winds are woven together with the rhythm section formed around the dynamic Daniel Fredriksson at the drum set.

The album was recorded live in Benny Andersson’s (ABBA) spacious studio on Skepps-holmen in Stockholm. Sound engineer Pål Svenre has mixed the music and given it an absolutely top class sound quality. On the album, in addition to music by Klas, there is also a composition written by the Swedish singer Alice Babs, who frequently visited the band’s concerts before she passed away in 2014.

The album will be released during the Stockholm Jazz Festival in October. Welcome to the release concert at Scalateatern, Wallingatan 32 on October 16 at 9 p.m.
