R.I.P. Nils-Bertil Dahlander

The veteran Swedish drummer died on June 6 in Mesquito, Nevada. He recorded and played with many of the greats in his adopted homeland and even changed his name to Bert Dale.
I recall vividly an LP he made with Teddy Wilson that showed he had had no problems in swinging behind that most elegant of pianists. He also recorded with Earl Hines.
This YouTube clip is a 1953 Swedish recording by his quartet of Undecided. In those days the Swedes were the front runners in Europe.
He was 83.
Lance.
