The wonderful store Hellstone Music in Stockholm, Sweden, has been very active on instagram (and facebook) the last few months. Publishing pictures of their inventory.

Some weeks ago a top hat and cane kit.
I had the honor to help fulfill my brother's longtime dream - a local jazz festival with only top of the line artists (all but one from Sweden).
And what a line up!!
