About

Finally, the Swedish Grammy Award-winning album Folk with eminent jazz group Oddjob, is released in a gorgeous new LP format. On the album, Oddjob turns to the past in order to see the future, blending traditional Swedish folk music expressions with contemporary jazz. The seven tracks are all inspired by the Caprice Records classic Ancient Swedish Pastoral Music.

When Folk was first released on CD and digital formats in the fall of 2015, 50 years had passed since celebrated jazz musicians Jan Johansson, Bengt-Arne Wallin, Georg Riedel, and Bengt Hallberg were instructed by the Swedish Radio to make a similar excavation in the Swedish folk music archives, resulting in the album Adventures in Jazz and Folklore. But that’s where the similarities end.

‘I contacted Oddjob for several reasons,’ says Dan Lundberg, chief librarian and archival director at Statens Musikverk (Swedish Performing Arts Agency), and the one who ignited the spark in the first place. ‘One was to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of Adventures in Jazz and Folklore by exploring how contemporary Swedish jazz musicians would tackle the same task today. But one thing was for sure, we didn’t want to mimic that album, but make something completely new.’

Another reason to give Oddjob the mission was to find a way to actualize the music collections in state institutions and agencies.

This new LP edition of Folk has been specially remastered and edited for the format, and promises a listening experience unlike any other.
