Last fall, Lindha Kallerdahl released “Gold Quintet Solo” on Hoob Records. She had gathered her favorite musicians from the improvisation scenes of Sweden and Denmark. Samuel Hällqvist and Thomas Gunillasson on guitars, Katrine Amsler on keyboards and micro-guitar and Fabian Kallerdahl on piano. Big landscapes of gui- tars, sounds, noise, melody and voice. The interplay between the musicians is central to Lindha. To gather around a sound, melody and atmosphere and together find a powerful overall direction.
Audience and press were delighted.
“Kallerdahl’s vinyl – one of the best this year“ / Dan Backman, SvD
“Lindha Kallerdahl pushes her voice to the utmost, not least in the solo parts, where every little angulation, every note and vocal effect are charged with sig- nificant opportunities” / Magnus Eriksson, Lira
“Lindha manages to fill her heavy, demanding music with hope and love without sacrificing an ounce of its urgent gravity” / Sasha Marko, Orkesterjournalen
“The musicians stitches together piano ballads and musical wonder with primal screams and anxiety vibrations to a natural entity, which, despite the possible intimidation I’m happily drawn to.” / Leif Carlsson, Tidningen Kulturen
“Kallerdahl’s equilibristic voice really opens up a new world of sound” /Tobias Magnusson, Göteborgs Fria
“From these pieces who joyfully bounce between sounds, reverberations and moods, an enormous creativity is shaped.” / Peter Bornemar, DIG
“…definitely the proper way to enjoy Lindha Kallerdahl’s work; it’s a process, where you spend time to really listen and experience the music. Then the experience is pro- found. ” / Niels Overgård, Jazznyt
“Her cover of Billy Strayhorn’s «Lush Life» charges this classic standard with nec- essary, amused and even ironic drama and highlights her telepathic interplay with pianist Fabian Kallerdahl.” / Eyal Hareuveni, Salt Peanuts
