Vital Stats

I have put the EGS demo up on YouTube.

Here are some of the vital statistics about the participants:

  • Jonas Isaksson – main instrument is the clarinet, believe it or not. Although he prefers the violin… I, for one, am pretty impressed with his guitar skills.
  • Nisse Blomster – jazz improvization and musical theory student from Uppsala, often appearing with the band Blue Stripe.
  • Daniel Palmqvist – solo artist and guitarist of The Murder of My Sweet.
