Jazz i Julton

In 2009 the critically and audience acclaimed album Jul på Svenska (eng. Christmas in Swedish) was released featuring Georg Wadenius, Arild Andersen and Jan Lundgren. Timeless Swedish Christmas carols and hymns done in a new way with jazz-inspired arrangements. The album sold around 10 000 copies in Norway and Sweden and was taken on tour in 2010.

Due to great demand, and the desire to work more with Christmas music, the trio decided to once again get together this year. This time they also invited Sweden\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s most sought after jazz singer: Rigmor Gustafsson. The collaboration between these artists transform into Jazz in Julton - Swedish, American and Norwegian Christmas songs, both vocal and instrumental varieties. Group common interest is that there are so many Christmas songs to choose from.
Georg and Arild live in Oslo, Norway, Rigmor is originally from Värmland but lives in Stockholm and Jan is from Ronneby. They have all been inspired by songs from their home regions. Georg and Arild who at times lived and worked in New York and Rigmor who studied in the same city, all three have a preference to American Christmas carols and traditions.
This year is the premiere of this lovable concert.
