Adventures in Jazz and Folklore (Äventyr i jazz och folkmusik)
Performers: The Bengt Arne Wallin orchestra, / The Jan Johansson Quintet, / The Georg Riedel orchestra, / The Bengt Hallberg orchestra, / The Georg Riedel ensemble
Some of Sweden's best jazz musicians were commissioned to arrange Swedish folk music for a radio broadcast in 1965. Bengt Hallberg, Jan Johansson, Georg Riedel and Bengt-Arne Wallin were given access, in the sound archives of Swedish Radio, to unique folk music recordings, many of which they made direct use of in their own music. The result are unique, and offer a look at whwere som eof the folk ensembles like Filarfolket were going to be heading a decade from then. These original recordings retain all of the original freshness of this hostoric broadcast.

Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
