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.

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.
