About the video

Jazz in Swedish from 1964 is the most-sold jazz record in Sweden ever, and a milestone in Swedish music. Jan Johansson’s jazz version of Swedish and other folk music became one of his signatures.
At this concert with pianist Jan Lundgren, Jan Johansson’s classical versions of both Swedish and Hungarian folk music are rejuvenated. Indeed, the idea is not to imitate Johansson as a model, but to pay tribute while adding new dimensions, both through Lundgren’s carefully refined piano playing and through the Bonfiglioli Weber String Quartet’s classical traits (string arrangements by Martin Berggren).
Jan Johansson regularly worked with bassist and composer Georg Riedel and here, Mattias Svensson has shouldered the central role with his double bass.
