Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Ten years ago I decided to go my own way. I wanted to work exclusively with my own music and concept. I started ALQ together with my childhood friend pianist Daniel Fredar and drummer Jon-Erik Björänge whom I've known since I graduated from my musician education. Bass player Mattias Grönroos played with them in other constellations so I tried him out and it was a perfect match. Together with this group of awesome musicians I developed my sound and it was these guys who told me to believe in my own material. They really liked it. In 2008, after the recording of our first album, BORDERLINE FIESTA (2009), Daniel left the band and Fabian Kallerdahl replaced him. At the same time I by accident heard saxophone player Björn Almgren at our local jazz club. I didn't know him personally but I instantly knew I wanted to hear more. So Björn became a fifth member and ALQ went from a quartet to quintet. Since then we've released two more albums, CITY (2010) and BEFORE YOU I WAS ALMOST FINE (2012). TEN is an album with live recordings celebrating ten years together with my band. It's a "best of ALQ" collection with twelve of our most popular songs. Hope you'll enjoy it.
