Description:The title of this album In Sweden 1957 is slightly misleading in that, while it contains five incredible tracks recorded in Stockholm in 1957, it also has six tracks recorded in the US.

The European tour of the J.J. Johnson Quintet has since become legendary. The quality of the personnel (Bobby Jasper, Tommy Flanagan, Wilbur Little and Elvin Jones) and performance was superb, and they left a very strong impression on the audiences in many different towns. The first four tracks in this album were recorded in a studio in Stockholm for radio broadcast. Tracks 6-9 were recorded live for broadcast at Red Hill Inn in Pensauken, New Jersey, on January 26, 1957. Tracks 10 and 11 are alternate takes from the recording session on July 22, 1956 which produced Johnson's famous Columbia album J Is For Jazz. Overall, the sound quality is not great but the performances are.

This album is simultaneously released on CD and LP, and only 999 copies are available on each format. Each copy is hand-numbered, and the LP is pressed on 180-gram high quality vinyl. CD or LP, this is a true collector's item, and Mr. Johfu of Marshmallow tells me that they are going FAST. Get your copy NOW before they are gone forever!

Recorded at Karlaplan Studio, Stockholm on June 14, 1957 (Tracks 1-5), live at Red Hill Inn, Pensauken, New Jersey on January 26, 1957 (Tracks 6-9), and in NYC on July 22, 1956 (Tracks 10-11). The CD comes in a gate-fold mini-LP, paper sleeve package and includes liner notes in English by Mitsuo Johfu. Mono.

This is a CD edition. The LP version is available here.
