I have really enjoyed these last days singing amazing jazz music from the 1960s! I got the chance to sing once more the beautiful piece Ljus tungt som bly by Jan Johansson (lyrics by Elisabet Hermodsson). The last time was during Östersjöfestivalen in August. During these new concerts with Radiojazzgruppen I also performed the piece Intermittent meditation över Dr Martin Luther King Jr by Georg Riedel.
Last night we did the final Jan Johansson Tribute concert at Uppsala Konsert & Kongress. Thank you all involved in this project! Thanks to all wonderful co-musicians, and special greetings to Georg Riedel (conductor and producer) and Lennart Åberg (producer).
