Equanimity update - Lineup (Pt. IX)

 

ON HORNS - THE TOM WALSH HORNS

 

Just a few weeks before wrapping up tracking for the album, I realized one of the tunes would really benefit from having a proper horn section on it.

Equanimity update - Lineup (Pt. VIII)

 

ON VOCALS #2 - ACCENT

A cappella music is something that has been with me for as long as I can remember.

Equanimity update - Lineup (Pt. VII)

 

ON VOCALS #1 - GÖRAN EDMAN

Ok, now this one's pretty special to me!

Equanimity update - Lineup (Pt. VI)

 

ON FLUGELHORN - JONNE BENTLÖV

The idea to have Jonne play flugelhorn on some song was originally conceived during the writing stages of my second album Painter's Portrait.

Equanimity update - Lineup (Pt. V)

 

ON PIANO/SYNTH - JOEL LYSSARIDES

Most of the songs I wrote early on for this album had an obvious jazz quartet vibe to them, so right out the gate I knew I would need a pianist who's got that type of thing down.

Equanimity update - Lineup (Pt. IV)

 

ON SAX/EWI - BJÖRN ARKÖ

When writing material for this album I listened a lot to the likes of Michael Brecker, Bob Berg & Mike Stern.

Equanimity update - Lineup (Pt. III)

 

ON GUITAR - CARL MÖRNER RINGSTRÖM

For the last couple of years Carl and I have talked on and off about joining forces on some project (since around the release of Luna Nueva, if memory serves me right), and I'm stoked that we could finally make it happen on Equanimity (only took us 6 freakin' years)!

Equanimity update - Lineup (Pt. II)

 

ON PERCUSSION - ANDREAS EKSTEDT

 

Andreas has been my go-to guy for percussion since we first worked together on Luna Nueva.

Equanimity update - Lineup (Pt. I)

 

ON DRUMS - JONATHAN LUNDBERG

 

When it became clear that Aron Mellergårdh wouldn't be able to make the recording this time around due to his growing commitments with Dirty Loops, I set out searching for someone to step in and take over the drumming duties.

Equanimity update - Mixing/mastering done

 

So, after a "slight" 2-year delay (why, thank you.. a new personal best!) the album is finally DONE!!

Equanimity update - Drum tracking

 

Hey all,
