  • Bengt-Arne Wallin?

    At a place out-of-my way today I saw an LP called "Swedes in Jazzland" (?). From memory the tracklist looks very like Wallin's "Jazz From Sweden" (see discogs) - but way earlier than 1974. Late 50's/early 60's? Possibly on Philips.

    I am pretty sure the first track was the same. The sleeve notes singled out that track and the last track as having more of a Swedish component (the last track was a trad Swedish tune?).

    Anything special?

    But I think the 1974 LP Jazz From Sweden is a budget comp. of material released on a series of EPs in late 50's titled Jazz From Sweden. I'm sure it has been re-packaged a few times.

      Ta.

      Probably worth investigating further, then. The issue being that there is little there that is cheap. And the round trip is well over an hour.

        So, it's probably this. Hard to read the sleeve notes, but from what I can see the overlapping tracks seem to be from the Jazz from Sweden sessions.

            I think this one had a different sleeve. More white in it. Though perhaps not that dissimilar in general composition. And when I first saw the list of tracks on "Jazz from Sweden" they looked very familiar.

            It will be a while before I go there again. Difficult to cram an (up to) hour and a half round trip into my weekend housework schedule.

            Any thoughts on the music?
