Gävleborgs län -Jan Johansson surely.


Alice Babs is a good singer, but Jan Johansson led the way in the integration of northern European folk music with jazz. Jazz på svenska is a classic, and the more recent ACT release In Hamburg is rarely far from my turntable.

Västerbottens län - Jonas Knutsson (I know, I know, some of you are going to say Johan Norberg, but come on - his melodic phrasing and compositional strengths make it Knutsson).




They'll always have Norrland.

It's certainly a slow burner.

I am still pondering before answering, myself - I am sure many others join me in that.
