The Duke - Kjell Ohman

5 AV 6 MÖJLIGA I BETYG I SVENSKA DAGBLADET

"Kjell Öhman är nog för många mest känd som den trygge pianospelaren från Allsång på Skansen men han är också utan tvekan Sveriges mest underskattade jazzpianist, även mustig orgelspelare och har fått lovord som sådan av självaste Lionel Hampton. Den här skivan med Hans Backenroth, bas (lysande solon), och Jocke Ekberg, trummor, är ett verkligt mästarprov på melodisk och svängig pianojazz. Oscar Peterson torde vara hans ideal men det är ytterst personlig musik, både i ballader och upptempo, lustfyllt och med enorm tajming. Mest imponerad är jag av hans vackra tolkning av Petersons innerliga komposition When summer comes.Titeln The Duke betyder inte att det är mycket Ellington, det är Dave Brubecks låt man spelar. Ellington finns dock med i den lustiga Squatty roo."
(Svenska Dagbladet)

Kjell Öhman, piano; Hans Backenroth, bass; Joakim Ekberg, drums.

This Swedish, splendid jazz trio here plays jazz classics such as Kelly's Blues (Oscar Peterson), The Duke (Dave Brubeck), My foolish heart (Victor Young/Ned Washington). Also included is the tune Shanna by the Swedish bass player and composer Georg Riedel.


Pianist, organist, composer, arranger and bandleader - Kjell Öhman may well be Sweden's most versatile musical personality. For the better part of fifty years his wide-ranging musicality has adapted itself to the most varying contexts. It seems that there is no genre with which he is not familiar, though he is happiest when he is seated at the piano, exploring traditional Oscar Peterson territory. But the fact that he has been inspired and influenced by Oscar Peterson certainly does not mean that he has slavishly followed the master. Kjell Öhman has gone his own way and has developed a highly personal style in which technical and harmonic aspects go hand in hand. He is one of that exclusive band of musicians who can exploit their instrument to the full.

Behind the double bass is the virtuoso Hans Backenroth whose style is a mix of Ray Brown, Oscar Pettifordand Niels-Henning Ørsted-Pedersen. There is a wonderful vitality and swing in his bass lines and the fl ow ofnotes in his intricate solos is as pure as a mountain stream. Backenroth is one of the leading bass players in Sweden and his playing has been praised by colleagues like Jesper Lundgaard and George Mraz, musicians who really know what they are talking about.

Behind the drums is one of Sweden's best "time-keepers" in the person of "Jocke" Ekberg. Like Kjell Öhman, he has performed in all sorts of contexts including TV, radio, studio, recording, musicals, theatre and so on. He is, thus, a hugely competent drummer who brings rhythmic stability to the performance and who can add his emphases in the most elegant manner. He is a listening musician who can subtly adapt to what is going on around him. This eminent trio offers us jazz for the discerning palate. And fi ne jazz, as we know, has curative properties.
