ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
My music is a little like storytelling with silent words.
Sometimes I know the story,sometimes I dont´.
Sometimes it´s happy ending,sometimes not...

Here I am,in a nutshell...

After graduating from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm 1973, I joined different bands as a keyboardplayer. I started as a pro with the Opus 6 orchestra 1974, playing dancemusic(cowers and standards),entertainment and show music.This was my second university. And so I realised that composing is what I really,really wanted to do. I started my appointment as a music teatcher and composer at the Academy of Dramatic arts in1979. 1989 I started my homestudio,"Studio Singlehanded" producing and composing, mainly for different media and theaters. So I am fairly familiar whith a lot of music from many traditions, and everything I´ve heard and love has influenced my music - as well as other arts and life itself.

"This is certainly not the faceless brand of smooth jazz that saturates U.S. radio. What Frykberg seems to be doing is finding a middle ground between smooth jazz and world music, connecting them together while leaving their specific qualities intact. It’s a difficult tightrope; too much of one can create an imbalance. However, Frykberg succeeds marvelously"
"A global outlook on music gives “Silent Words” its edge. For jazz to evolve, it needs an artist such as Frykberg to cut its shackles and roam free to other continents".

Critique: "Silent Words" (CD)
"Thomas’ set of twelve songs contain a bright combination of instrumentation, melody, and rhythm. The songs are mostly four to six minutes in length. The fluid keyboards, pensive piano, world percussion, and jazzy incarnations are nothing short of miraculous. In fact, Sunshine Marathon does not race to the finish too soon—it slowly develops and unfolds throughout without any weaknesses. This is ideal for fans of world jazz, instrumental music, and a good time".
