Swedish Jazz show that opens with the Danska Radions Big Band doing the theme. Your host and band leader is Harry Arnold who speaks Swedish(what else?) and introduces the band playing the Charlie Barnet hit “Cherokee.”
Now what may take a lot of people by surprise….Anni-Frid Lyngstad, better known years later as Frida of Abba. She sings “Just One Of Those Things.” She is terrific. I never could stand Abba and had no idea of this singer’s talent. She sings in English. She follows this with “Mad About The Boy.” I’ll never know why she didn’t release an album of standards.
Harry brings the band back for “Chicago.” The singer is Carli Tornehave from Sweden who sings in English. Then the band swings out “On The Street Where You Live.” Carli returns and sings “I Left My Heart In San Francisco.” Time again for Frida and a great version of “My Man.” The band now does “Jersey Bounce.”
That ends the show., Jazz fans should see and hear this.
