RIP Bengt Hallberg

Another fine pianist has left us - Sweden's Bengt Hallberg. Back in the 1950s, Sweden was at the forefront of European jazz with outstanding players such as baritone saxist Lars Gullin, altoist Arne Domnerus and pianist Hallberg. They recorded with many Americans, Hallberg receiving international recognition after a series of sides with Stan Getz. I still have them on Esquire 78 rpms as well as on LP -  treasured items.
Bengt Hallberg died July 2 aged 80.
RIP.
Lance.
