Bengt-Arne Wallin / Jan Johansson / Georg Riedel / Bengt Hallberg ‎– Adventures In Jazz And Folklore


Some of the most prominent jazz musicians in Sweden were summoned to make arrangements of Swedish folk music for a Swedish Radio broadcast in 1965.

The occasion was a special one – an international competition entitled “Triumph Variété”.Bengt Hallberg, Jan Johansson, Georg Riedel and Bengt-Arne Wallin were given access, in the Swedish Radio archives, to unique recordings of folk music, several of which were used in the arrangements just as they were. The result was so good that, in addition to winning first prize, the program was turned into a gramophone recording.

Among the arranged tunes are the Polska of Lapp-Nils, the Saint George tune and Pasture tune from Mockfjärd.
