Interview: Nils Lindberg

Interview: Nils Lindberg

Yesterday I posted on composer, arranger and pianist Nils Lindberg's 1963 album Trisection, a superb but almost unknown orchestral jazz recording. I also provided a bit of background on Sweden's 100-year love affair with jazz. Today, a conversation with Nils on Sax Appeal (1960) and Trisection (1963)—two of his early jazz albums recorded in Stockholm: JazzWax: ...


Nils Lindberg: "Trisection" (1962)

Nils Lindberg: "Trisection" (1962)

Today I'm going to tell you about one of the finest jazz albums recorded in the early '60s—an album that is likely unfamiliar to you but will surely become one of your favorites. The album is Trisection by Swedish composer, arranger and pianist Nils Lindberg. (Tomorrow I'll have an interview with Nils from Stockholm about the ...


Artistry Jazz Group and Friends: Tribute!

Read "Tribute!" reviewed by Chris Mosey

An absolute gem, featuring some of the best players in Scandinavia in an extremely well thought-out program of music, paying tribute to “musicians and artists who shaped new sounds and ideas." It's the brainchild of independent record producer Torgil Rosenberg and pianist Jan Lundgren. Three top Swedish musicians, Peter Asplund on trumpet, Klas ...


Deck the Halls with Big Band Carols

Read "Deck the Halls with Big Band Carols" reviewed by Jack Bowers

With the holiday season on track and hastening toward us like a runaway locomotive, it's time once again to hunker down and prepare for the annual onslaught of “Rudolph," “Frosty the Snowman," “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," “Sleigh Ride," “Silver Bells," chestnuts roasting on an open fire and everyone's perennial favorite, “White Christmas." Not to ...


Nils Lindberg / Margareta Bengtson: As We Are

Read "As We Are" reviewed by Chris Mosey

With climate change and recent weather, the Shakespearean sonnet “Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day?" would seem to have become a trifle outmoded. Still, where there's a Will there's a way and Nils Lindberg has set the piece to music. Lindberg is a true Renaissance man. From his home in Gagnef, a small village ...


Nils Lindberg: Timeless (Seven Dalecarlian Paintings)

Read "Timeless (Seven Dalecarlian Paintings)" reviewed by Mark Sabbatini

Nils Lindberg has apparently spent his lengthy career recording some pretty good jazz-meets-ancient-folk which you've never heard. His 2003 Christmas album hit the market in January of 2004 and is now out of print. Some of his used albums sell for more than $100 each, though a few more reasonably priced releases are available on the ...


Nils Lindberg: A Christmas Cantata

Read "A Christmas Cantata" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Another year, another Christmas album that arrives on the doorstep in January. Too bad, really, as composer/arranger/pianist Nils Lindberg's Christmas Cantata is an immaculately conceived treatise that blends music based on biblical passages with traditional English, French, Welsh and Swedish carols and songs into an iridescent medley that invigorates, inspires and swings in equal measure. Lindberg's ...
