Apr 3, 2022 | Comments: 1
I have made the painting for the cover of the new album by Henrik von Euler. First single released now and album will come in May.
Beautiful instrumental music. "Soothing, minimalistic piano pieces accompanied by woodwinds and strings. Escapism for the tired and weary." 
You can listen to the single here if you have Spotify.

This pen and watercolor sketch of Bill Evans was included in Gerald Locklin's  chap "More Takes on Bill Evans" from Bottle of Smoke Press in 2002. 

Bill Evans lives!

Happy New Year 2022 to all my friends! Gott Nytt År!


 

Gerry Locklin & I were friends

Tribute | Dec 20, 2021 | Comments: 2

Gerry Locklin (1941-2021) was a dear friend of mine and a mentor when I started to write poetry and got published.

I made this small tribute chapbook to Gerry and I have sent it out as a gift to friends. I have a few copies left - let me know if you are interested.

Ballads

John Coltrane | Dec 3, 2021 | Comments: 1

A favorite album for many, and not only the hardcore Coltrane fans. A lot of people found Coltrane through this and the album with Johnny Hartman. Maybe they turned away later after listening to the more free stuff.... Time to turn back!

I Feel Fine

Nov 24, 2021 | Comments: 1

This was the first record I bought, the EP I Feel Fine with The Beatles. I bought it at Brink's Musik in Eskilstuna. The single was released in 1964 and maybe it was early in 1965 that I bought the EP, I was 12 years old.

On the backside was She's A Woman and the EP had two more songs, It Won't Be Long and Baby It's You
