I used to call this trio Richard Andersson Icelandic Trio, but I admit that wasn’t the most genius name. So for our debut album we have changed name: Richard Andersson NOR.
Richard Andersson NOR is a very important trio to me. Oskar Gudjonsson (sax), Matthias Hemstock (drums) and I, have spent endless hours in the car driving round Iceland and Denmark performing our music for both the average jazz audience and hundreds of danish school kids. It is a blast spending time and sharing music with these guys….
We recorded this album in the spring of 2016 and will be releasing it on April 21st at the danish embassy in Reykjavik. Can´t wait!
