COLYER IN STOCKHOLM - His last recordings

COLYER IN STOCKHOLM - His last recordings
CD / Product Number: JCCD3007

The music on this CD was recorded on 28th June 1986 at the Stockholm Jazz Festival. The recording was made at Ken's request as he wanted to document his stay in Sweden. He was due to return the following year, but sadly grew too ill. In July 1985 he recorded what was to have been his last record with Acker Bilk for the Stomp Off label, but with the release of these tracks, this was to become his last recording - worthy testament for a great jazz musician.
Personnel are: KEN COLYER, Trumpet and vocals, GORAN ERIKSSON, Clarinet, JENS LINDGREN, Trombone, HOLGER GROSS, Banjo, GORAN LIND, String Bass, CACKA EKHE Drums.

Reviews of This Recording

Kings Jazz Review This recording was made on the 28th June, 1986 and, we are told, could well be the last that Ken ever made. Colyer's lead is relaxed, but firm, and he seems to have enjoyed himself, giving us a typical vocal on Pallet On the Floor. The other musicians are from Sweden's Classic Jazz Band and are well versed in the New Orleans style. Although the numbers on the CD are all well known, the refreshing approach by the band ensures that the performances are anything but routine. A worthwhile addition to your collection. - John Rickard
