Abstract (type = abstract)
The progression of post-World War II jazz in Sweden is elaborated through study of some of that country’s most uniquely influential artists. Beginning with a discussion of topics concentrating on the early reliance upon American models, the alto saxophonist Arne Domnérus and trumpeter Rolf Ericson are shown to establish a jazz practice that ushers in the careers of more nationalistic artists such as baritone saxophonist and composer Lars Gullin. The turbulent life and career of Gullin is explicated, and highlights his major compositions that launched a segment of folk-inspired jazz that earned the epithet “goatherd’s jazz.” Through musical analysis, a selection of Gullin’s works are
used to show how the composer melded certain departures in songform found in Swedish folk music with the aesthetic practice of Cool Jazz of the 1950s. Other influential Swedish musicians such as Bengt-Arne Wallin, Nils Lindberg, and Jan Johansson are discussed to further broaden the nationalistic trend. The appendix features a near complete discography of pianist Johansson’s musical career, whereby Swedish jazz transcended previous American patterns and codified its own repertoire centering on regional folk songs.
