Two CD set containing recordings from two of Sweden's most respected musicians. More than four decades since his passing, composer, arranger and musician Jan Johansson remains a monumental figure on the Swedish music and cultural scene. a gifted pianist, his detailed, crystal clear style is instantly recognizable. There is melancholic quality in Johansson's best work that is at once profoundly joyful. It's a marvelous sound. a truly singular musical voice that is still being celebrated. His masterpiece, JAZZ PA SVENSKA (Jazz in Swedish), features the most exquisite jazz arrangements of traditional folk tunes and is by some distance the best-selling Swedish jazz record of all time…

Jan gives these nice tunes a real bluesy treatment and gets a rich variety of sounds from his piano. All the musicians combine to create various moods from bright lively swing to sleepy and soulful. There is a great sense of relaxed enjoyment in these performances. Anyone who likes jazz and blues piano music will find plenty to enjoy here. The sound is excellent as usual. ~ CDBaby

Besides some CDs and LPs produced in Sweden and Japan, our own master pianist Jan Lundgren has recorded sixteen albums – nine of them under his own name – on the superb and very ambitious Spanish Fresh Sound label, today distributed all over the world. All but one were produced in Los Angeles by the legendary Dick Bank. The exception, Stockholm Get-Together from 1994, was produced by Jan himself. Lundgren retrospective Mr. Bank has now put together an excellent and varied Lundgren compilation. He has chosen twelve selections from ten of his own Fresh Sound productions, recorded between 1995 and 2003, and he presents them chronologically. He lets us listen to Jan entirely on his own, with his American trios and together with jazz celebrities like Bill Perkins, Conte Candoli, Herb Geller…

Despite its title, this set does not feature trumpeter Jan Allan at the age of seventy. Actually, it consists of a couple sessions from 1968-1969 that were originally released as an LP in 1970 that gained very good reviews in Europe at the time. Allan is featured with a Swedish orchestra that plays six originals (three by Nils Lindberg) and includes on various selections altoist Arne Domnérus, pianist Bobo Stenson, guitarist Rene Gustafsson, and bassist Palle Danielsson in the personnel. The music is tonal and generally swinging but unpredictable in spots, challenging Allan to play at his best. Well worth searching for.

It was through the influence of Landgren and Svensson’s former teacher Bengt-Arne Wallin, who recorded the landmark album “Old Folklore In Swedish Modern” back in 1962 (ACT 9254-2), that Svensson and Landgren were inspired to make a duo album centered around folk songs. In August 1997 both went into the studio and with only trombone and piano recorded Swedish Folk Modern (ACT 9257-2). Their improvised treatments of the classic songs of the folk culture not only impressed the public; it brought praise from the press.
