I have been playing the flute since I was ten. As a child, I played classical music. During my teens, I became interested in jazz, blues and rock, and this has characterised my musical career.
On this website there is information about some albums I have been involved in, and some bands I have played with, as well as music that has never been released before, and finally some sheet music to download.
But first, some tunes to get you started:
I was a member of Grovjobb from 1997 to 2002, and the leader of Simon Jensen Band from 2003 to 2008. During these years, four albums were released that over time have gained some "cult status" within their respective genres.
I have also participated as a studio musician on some records that are not included in the list below.
Most reviews have disappeared from the internet as the years have gone by. Never mind, though. Below are some really nice statements from listeners, and such utterances always outweigh the attempts of professional reviewers to write something "educated".
For me, the most important thing about music has always been to perform it, and I am mainly a live musician. The reason is that I consider music to be communication. With text I can make people think, because text speaks to the brain. But to communicate directly with human bodies, music is needed.
Below are some of the bands I have played with over the years. When I was most active, I had 30-40 concerts a year. To get these gigs, recordings were needed. It is a selection of this material you can hear below.
The band Tangle existed in several different constellations in the period 2008 to 2010:
The band någon (meaning someone) existed in the period 2000 to 2003:
The duo Advokatbyrån Götherskjöld & Jensen existed in 2011 and 2012:
The trio Carrilho Jensen Nyberg existed for three weeks in the autumn of 2009 while the Brazilian guitarist Frederick Carrilho visited me in Gothenburg:
Here are som various tunes with Simon Jensen Band, from three different recordings (in reverse chronological order).
Here are some solo recordings from the past, as well as an old song with the Danish band Patricia Painting in which I was a regular member during my wildest years from 1993 to 1996.
Below are some sheet music to download. The songs Senses and Running can be good training for flutists of all genres.
