ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Anders Helmerson was born in a musical family in Sweden where his mother was a classical pianist and his father a jazz musician. He studied classical piano and then his musical interests evolved into progressive rock, such as Yes, Crimson, as well as jazz music as Chic Correa, Bill Evans etc.

In 1981, his first album “End Of Illusion” was released, first by Swedish label TMC, but it was until 15 years later it was rereleased at French label Musea where it got cult status and became a big seller. According to a Japanese music magazine, he became famous by End Of Illusion and remembered by progressive rock fans in Japan for over a decade as a mysterious man. The wait for success of his first album kept Anders out of the music scene for years.

By 2002, his second album “Fields Of Inertia” was recorded in Brazil, and it was released by the Rio based label Som Interior. Anders was here working with Brazilian musicians as Robertimbo Silva and others. The outcome was a bowl of prog music and latin jazz in a rather neo classic mix. This was his first experience with digital recording which later made a total revolution in the record industry, maybe for Anders elaborated writing style more to a benefit than a disadvantage.

After a few years preparations he released his third album “Triple Ripple” in 2010. This was when Anders left the prog sphere and stepped into his own invention stage - prog fusion. The album was launched by Musea as a result of collaboration with an American drummer Marco Minnemann and bassist Bryan Beller. This was a “Jazz Rock Fusion Tour de Force”. By working it trough, bar by bar it was finally mixed and mastered at Abbey Road Studios. The mix is bright and the bell tones have a serious tone.
After the release Anders performed the album live as a solo artist and it made him return to Brazil for a tour and it was also performed in many venues around the world.

In 2018, he expressed his passion on the keys of a grand piano and he composed music suggesting he had become a jazz musician. Anders calls this new project Quantum House Project. Swapping the keyboard rig for a grand piano was for Anders not a change of music style, more like a modernisation of the timbre - for many a change of style and a disappointment but his music has been opened for a larger crowd. For this project he chose the French musicians Christian Grassart on drums and Thierry Conand on bass. The trio is set to play live.
