About the show

Jazz and folk music usually don't mix. But Hank Jones and Charlie Haden did a spellbinding and successful album of old spirituals and I am convinced they must have heard the great 60s recordings of Swedish pianist Jan Johansson. His treatment of Swedish folk tunes are so soulful and simple, they have never been far away from my turntable since I first discovered them in 1968, only two years after Johansson was tragically killed in a car accident.
