"Fred Lonberg-Holm (born 1962) is an American cellist based in Chicago. He relocated from New York City to Chicago in 1995. Lonberg-Holm is most identified with playing free improvisation and free jazz. He is also a composer of concert works. As a session musician and arranger, he is credited on many rock, pop, and country records. Lonberg-Holm currently leads the Valentine Trio, with Jason Roebke (bass) and Frank Rosaly (drums). This jazz trio performs original compositions as well as tunes by both jazz composers (e.g. Sun Ra) and pop songwriters (e.g. Jeff Tweedy, Syd Barrett). The group released its first album Terminal Valentine, in 2007, which was reviewed by AllAboutJazz critic Nils Jacobson.

He coordinates and directs performances of his Lightbox Orchestra, an improvising ensemble with a flexible, ever-changing membership. Lonberg-Holm does not play an instrument in this group, but rather conducts its non-idiomatic improvisations via the "lightbox" and by holding up handwritten signs. The lightbox contains a light bulb for each musician which Lonberg-Holm switches on or off to suggest when they should play. Collective groups of which Lonberg-Holm is a member include Terminal 4 who released an album, in 2003, called When I'm Falling that received four and a half stars, and AMG Album Pick by Allmusic, and it was reviewed by Allmusic's Joslyn Layne, The Boxhead Ensemble, Pillow, the Lonberg-Holm/Kessler/Zerang trio (with Kent Kessler and Michael Zerang), and the Dörner/Lonberg-Holm duo (with Axel Dörner).

Among groups led by other people, he is a member of the Vandermark 5, the Joe McPhee Trio, the Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet, Keefe Jackson's Fast Citizens, and Ken Vandermark's Territory Band. When he lived in New York, Lonberg-Holm frequently collaborated with the rock group God Is My Co-Pilot pianist and composer Anthony Coleman as well as multi-instrumentalist Paul Duncan of Warm Ghost. In Chicago, he has worked with Jim O'Rourke, Bobby Conn (on "Llovessonngs" [1999] and "The Golden Age" [2001]), The Flying Luttenbachers, Lake Of Dracula, Wilco, Rivulets, Mats Gustafsson, Sten Sandell, Jaap Blonk, John Butcher, and a great many others.

Lonberg-Holm's concert works have been premiered by William Winant, Carrie Biolo, the Austin New Music Co-Op, Subtropics Ensemble, Duo Atypica, the Schanzer/Speach Duo, New Winds, Paul Hoskin, Kevin Norton, the E.S.P. Ensemble, and others. His scores for dance have been performed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Dance Theater Workshop as well as many other venues. He is a former composition student of Anthony Braxton and Morton Feldman. He performed improvised music in the role of a troubled composer who finds inspiration in the love of a couple he spots on the street in a short film for the Playboy channel."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Disappeared is the first CD by the multi-national trio of Swedish pianist Sten Sandell, Chicago- based cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, and Chicago-based percussionist Michael Zerang. This music is a monument to how three musicians can listen to one another at a very high degree and create fresh and vital music entirely free of cliché.

This disc was recorded at Airwave Recording Studios in Chicago in April of 1998 and was mixed and mastered at the same studios in September of 2000 with the fine John McCortney engineering.

The three musicians gained a fantastic rapport with one another on this recording. According to writer John Corbett; "This particular aggregation is an indication of the strong connection between the current Chicago improvising scene and the vibrant Swedish creative music scene. Like Zerang, Sandell is a senior member of his scene; he was active in the mid '70s, helping create the conditions for what would turn into one of the great musical contexts of the end of the '90s. Lonberg-Holm and Zerang have been working together extensively for years, ever since the cellist moved to Chicago from New York in the mid '90s.Years of working together, sussing one another out, learning each other's tricks and learning how to surprise one another. This is a trio built on shared aesthetic concerns and masterful interactivity."

In the Summer 2001 issue of Copper Press, Bill Meyer said, "Although its music encompasses vast spaces, the recording is hardly immaterial. Drums and cello scrape, spring, and carom like the sounds of sabotage in a ball-bearing factory, hurtling around and through the rumble of Sandell's Cage-like piano preparations. The Swede also indulges in throat singing that evokes visions of an intestinally themed opera staged on Tuvan steppes. It's hardly your pa's piano trio record." "-Nuscope
