The group Karlsson Jazz was started with a gig at Shalimar (Abrahamsberg, Stockholm) 26 of January 2012. On the first gig it was me on baritone saxophone (as always), Anders Stefansson, trombone, Anna Persson, voice, Rolf Arntsen, piano, Micke Knudsen, bass and Henric Hammarslätt, drums.
The 1st of March Anna Persson, voice, Johan Andersson, piano and Leif Unander, bass. Without drums and only four on the stage was interesting. Something I like to continue to work with.
The 4th of June it was also on Shalimar with Johan Andersson, piano, Arne Andersson, trumpet and Leif Unander, bass.
Now this evening we have practiced with Rickard Domeij, bass and he will be there this evening.
Why dont I have drums in the group? I like it without drums in this kind of soft background.
After the gig tonight its time to find some other place to play with Karlsson Jazz on. Shalimar is good but we would like to try something else to.
