Anders Widmark Trio: Soul Piano (2010)

Anders Widmark - pianist & songwriter - was born 1963, in Uppsala, Sweden. At the age of 7 he started to compose and improvise on the piano. Many people have been inspired by the piano playing of Anders Widmark. Whether he plays blues, jazz or songs you will find a very personal imprint. According to the National Encyclopedia he also was "one of the first in Sweden in the beginning of 1990 to mix jazz with hip hop and acid jazz".
"I first heard Anders in 1999 and was knocked out by his playing. I've followed his playing ever since and have never failed to be impressed by the range of his talent. He's among the great pianists of our time." Stuart Nicholson (Stuart Nicholson is an acclaimed author, critic and journalist, who has contributed to many leading newspapers and magazines including the New York Times, The London Times, Jazz Times and others.) Soul Piano is dynamic, extrovert and soulful jazz. Six new compositions mixed with a gospel version of 'Bye, Bye Blackbird' and a solo piano performance of 'Sweet Georgia Brown'.
