THOMMY ANDRESSON `WOOD BLOOD ENSEMBLE` was born during the Copenhagen Jazzfestival 2008.
Very positive reviews and interest of the music on concerts and festivals. In 2017 the latest album `WOOD SPINE` was released, and the band will start playing concerts again.
Present music that moves, seeks forward, and has a “here & now” feel.
Thommy Andersson is constantly crossing the border between history and future in his playing as well as in his composing.
The centerpoint of the `WOOD BLOOD ENSEMBLE` is the organic structure with clear melody statements, reflecting a strong background of the swedish folklore and also the presence of modern improvised music.
