US journalist Doug Ramsey is covering the Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival for the third time. InÂ the first post from YstadÂ on his award-winning blog, Rifftides,Â he includes a review ofÂ Jan Allan’s concert with Norrbotten Big Band at the medieval courtyard venue, Per Helsas GĂ„rd.
He writes: “Framed in half timbers, the courtyard walls of farm buildings hundreds of years old echoed Allanâs solos. The arrangements for the Norrbotten, many of which Allan wrote, reflected the restraint, logic and surprise that also characterize his trumpet improvisations. The festival was off to a fine start.”
