Album Review

A major bandleader in Sweden during the 1940s, trumpeter Thore Ehrling's orchestra had many of the top Swedish players of the later part of the swing era. The music on this collector's CD includes highlights of a few radio broadcasts from 1947 and selected appearances from 1941-50. Some of the later numbers show the influence of bebop. Among the key soloists are trumpeter Gosta Torner (Ehrling was generous in allocating solo space despite himself being a trumpeter), clarinetist Casper Hjukstrom, tenor-saxophonist Carl-Henrik Norin, and Arne Domnerus on alto and clarinet. Other than five originals, the repertoire is comprised of American swing standards, showing that not all of the top swing bands were in the U.S. in the 1940s.
