2021 - Opus I
In 2021, Anders released the fifth album “Opus I” with live trio members: Anders Helmerson (Piano / Composer), Lukasz Chyla (Bass) and Juan Felipe Mejia Tobón (Drums). This album featured seven tracks of progressive and innovative original jazz music showcasing the best of Anders’ eclectic contemporary style, which was reviewed as “The world’s first Opus in the key of I – this is music like you have never heard before.”
2018 - Quantum House Project
In 2018, his fourth album “Quantum House Project” was released. Anders 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 “The 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 challenge 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.
2010 - Triple Ripple
In 2010, his third album “Triple Ripple” was released after a few years preparations. 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 in London, the U.K.. According to Anders, “The mix is bright and the bell tones have a serious tone”.
2002 - Fields Of Inertia
In 2002, his second album “Fields Of Inertia”, which has been recorded in Rio and mixed in New York, was released by the Rio based label Som Interior Artistical Productions. Anders has been working in Brazil 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.
1981 - End Of Illusion
In 1981, his first album “End Of Illusion” was released, initially by Swedish label TMC, but 15 years later it was re-released at French label Musea Records where it got cult status and became a big seller.
