  • A Selection from
    Tomas Örnberg's BLUE FIVE & The Swedish Jazz Kings

    SACD 22101  SACD / hybrid

    A Selection from

    We have made 3 albums with Tomas Örnberg´s BLUE FIVE and 3 with The Swedish Jazz Kings.

    Both bands are based upon the partnership with Bent Persson and Tomas Örnberg

    We feel that what they have done through the years is really a tribute to the Chicago Jazz era and  in many ways a recreation of the music of Clarence Williams.
    Both Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet are of course also among the important musicians who have inspired this band.

    I do not think that any band in the world has so consistently made the Classic Jazz from this time  -  1920 to 1930  -   so alive and really revived it in such an authentic and positive way!
    The selection of tracks we have made from those 6 albums, has great variation and really shows the broad spectrum of the musical choice of this band!

    And last but not least; featuring three outstanding guests:  Kenny Davern (cl), Roy Williams (tb) & Bob Barnard (crnt/tp) together with Bent Persson (crnt/tp), who is a regular member of the band.

    Eva Taylor

    SACD 22071  SACD / hybrid

    Live at the Pawnshop

    It was certainly a magic night at the Pawnshop (Stampen) in March, 1976 when a young lady of 81 completely captured and entranced the audience with her stage presence and vibrant personality. Her communication with the musicians and audience combined to elevate her artistry beyond the aural level to include that indefinable ingredient….. atmosphere. This atmosphere was retrieved from our vaults from 31 years ago and like a good wine has aged well as lovers of jazz from the twenties will appreciate. 

    Eva Taylor is a direct link with the great era of jazz when she was singing with the Clarence Williams Blue Five and also with Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet who were coming to their peak as influential jazz geniuses in the mid twenties.

    The band which perfectly complements her artistry is Maggie’s Blue Five and includes Tomas Örnberg on clarinet & sopranosaxophone and Bent Persson, trumpet from Tomas Örnberg’s Blue Five and later on, The Swedish Jazz Kings.

    Also in the band are Andreas Heymowski - clarinet and bassclarinet, Jens ‘Jesse’ Lindgren - trombone, Hans Hultman-Boye - piano, Göran Stachewsky - banjo, Lennart Bohm - bass and Margaretha Thalén - vocals.
