Jan Johansson and "Jazz på Svenska"

Jan Johansson was a swedish pianoplayer that died tragically at the age of 39 in a car accident. However his piano playing and music still lives on in the swedish souls. In 1965 he did the album “Jazz på Svenska” which translates to “Jazz In Swedish” and it became the most selling jazz album in Swden ever…and still is…It contains old swedish folksongs that Jan transformed to his own playing style…Visa från Utanmyra - YouTube

I have played piano for just two years. My first learned songs were Visa från Rättvik and Visa från Utanmyra. From the album songbook.

I se forward to Learning the whole arrangement.
Great inspiration here with links to transkriptions.
