The recording of “Jazz på svenska” with Jan Johansson from 1966 has acquired an almost mythological status in Scandinavian music history. This timeless bestselling classic pulled old Swedish folk tunes down from the shelf and into the respectful and loving hands of pianist Johansson and bassist Georg Riedel.
It is with this love and respect that Jan Lundgren, together with string orchestra, takes this musical inheritance, moving it onward with a fresh dusting down, yet with the original spirit still intact. Seldom exquisite music that will delight the listener.
Line-up: Jan Lundgren – piano; Mattias Svensson – bass; – violin; Joanna Lewis- violin; Harvey-Nagl – violin; Aurore Cany – viola; Asja Valcic – cello
