Sunset in Guitarland (2010)

“I have always liked Westcoast music for its combination of RnB, mixed with the possibilities of jazz improvisation and playfulness. In the past I have recorded albums in just a few days.

Rosewood (2005)

“Twelve years after Guitarland I wanted to return to the trio with the amazing Lars Danielsson and Anders Kjellberg. The guitar sound turned out fine, despite the fact that my beloved Polytone amplifier broke down on the very first note of the session – leaving me with whatever I could borrow from the music store across the street.”

Toco (2000)

“I am really proud of this album. I wrote all the music, which in some cases was a lot more abstract than what I had done before. But the fact that the album never got the distribution I had been promised, was one of my biggest setbacks ever. With that in mind it is pretty remarkable that I later received a generous royalty check – from India.”

Rolf Jardemark – guitar
Yasuhito Mori – bass
Terje Sundby – drums

Guitarland (1993)

”I knew I wanted to make a trio album, but I never thought it would make the kind of impact that it did. It got airplay and great reviews all over Europe. I guess my passion about the project made a difference. It is a bit funny that this comparably mellow session was recorded at Studio Bauhaus – now the home of heavy metal band In Flames.”

Soft Landing (1989)

”We recorded it in a tiny studio in Uddevalla, north of Gothenburg – far from the fancy places drummer Per Lindvall was used to. When standing at a certain spot in the room, it was easy to get Russian radio in the headphones.”
