My first album was the 1980 Songs with jazz piano trio. 35 years later, I'm recording a new trio album of original pieces I've long felt needed definitive versions. The Wild Bird Flies will be released next spring.
Remastered albums Candlelight and World now available at online stores and streaming sites.
Requiem - with full orchestra and choir - will be performed in Sofiakyrkan, Stockholm, on November 15.
My 1982 duo album Fairy Tales with the late Norwegian singer Radka Toneff is undergoing a complete remastering and will be released - LP, CD and digital - in November in a completely new aural and visual package. It captures more of both the warmth and nerve of the original session, so don't miss.
