therhythmisodd play progressive music filled with energy. The base line for this project is Bjorn Egelius: Bass player and also therhythmisodd groove inventor Leif Fredriksson: a Swedish drum legend with more then 30 years of touring, recording and playing worldwide.Leif started his carrier 15 years old only and at the age of 17 he went on tour with Don Cherry. Starting from that Leif been touring together and playing with musicians like Jan Akkerman, Ulf Wakenius, Esbjörn Svensson, Benny Bailey, Barney Kessel, Bebo Valdes, Hannibal Marvin Peterson and many more.
There's no lack of exceptionally gifted and talented musicians, producers and organizers, composers, improvisers both professionals and amateurs, but.... We felt that our planet was drenched by 2/4 or 4/4 beat. You can hear it in jazz, classical, pop, folk music, blues, rock etc. What ever genre we listen to, counted the four or eight beat. That's why we wanted to do something completely different. We thought that our music could bring a new approach. The result became A progressive musical group established in September 2006 by Bjorn Egelius bass, Leif Fredriksson on drums and Tobbe Johansson playing guitar.
We in therhythmisodd are influenced by all the good and fantastic musicians we earlier in life has both played with or listened to. Many of the great giants who lived before us has left recordings that we all can enjoy and get inspired by. Many have already left us, but new fantastic talented and gifted persons gets born every day, we thank you for that.
