This weekend we had four very talented ladies here. Sjöströmska Kvartetten is a string quartet based in Gothenburg that has been around since 2007. They were very thorough and professional which suited our special project perfectly. We will tell you more about this in a while. It’s exciting stuff.

There’s only a few weeks to go and the excitement is building at Marten HQ. Las Vegas CES 2013 is just around the corner. (Oh, and there’s Christmas too).
We’re launching two new models at the CES – Django L and Coltrane Tenor.
Yes, that’s right – Django L is here! Following in response to last year’s success, Django XL, we had to build this. We’re really happy with the result. In fact it’s exceeded our expectations. This one is 2-way, with bass units from Norwegian SEAS and tweeter from Accuton.
We’re really proud of Coltrane Tenor too. It has newly designed bass units and we think it sounds great.
We had a sneak preview in our hometown of Gothenburg as we talked about in our previous post, but the world premiere will be at the CES. We hope you can visit us in Las Vegas, but if not, just follow all the action here.
We’ll be right back with even more stuff.

Yesterday I was with some friends, at the excellent jazz-club Nefertiti in Gothenburg, to see and hear the fantastic musician Richard Bona from Cameroon. He is a long time favourite of mine and I have heard him live several times before.
It was a great concert which had a wide variety of styles. He mixes jazz, funk, blues and African rythms in a very attractive and sometimes genius way. He is a real master of his instrument (bass), and his band was not bad either. Especially the drummer Obed Calvaire and the keyboard player Etienne Stadwijk.
He has released a new album called “The Ten Shades of Blues”. I have not heard the album yet but he played a few songs from it and it was very promising. The sound quality is usually very good on Bona´s records.
Thank you Richard Bona for a great concert.

One Friday night in February we got a table at the brilliant jazz spot called Nefertiti in Gothenburg. We suffer from a very cold and extremely snowy winter in Gothenburg and we needed to warm ourselves with some high quality live music.
