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)! In my opinion he is one of the most happening guitarists on the scene today, his playing is full of interesting concepts & ideas, he's got ridiculous dexterity, and I also love how - contrary to the majority of extended-range guitar players out there - he uses the full range of the 8-string guitar in his solos.
Carl has spent many years touring & recording with Danish jazz singer Malene Mortensen, in 2013 he released an album under his own name (Neocolony), plus he's also a member of fusion trio The Effect (alongside Jonathan Lundberg & Henrik Linder), and recently debuted his new band Majestic Orchestra at the BMW Welt Jazz Award 2015 in Munich, Germany.
