Jazz på svenska (“Jazz in Swedish”) is an album by the Swedish jazz pianist Jan Johansson (1931-1968). The recording was first issued in 1964 and consists of jazz arrangements of Swedish folk songs. All arrangements are very sparse, consisting only of Johansson’s piano and Georg Riedel’s bass. It is one of the best-selling jazz albums in Swedish history and many of the tracks are famous within Sweden, especially the lead track “Visa från Utanmyra” (Song from Utanmyra). Jazz på svenska is a magic recording, Jan Johansson’s best.

Moskéinbjudan till Lars Vilks nu tillbakadragen
Af Thomas Nydahl

Ingen missade förstås Malmömoskéns inbjudan till Lars Vilks. Men har människor också sett att inbjudan är tillbakadragen? Varför skedde detta undrar förstås vän av ordning. Låt oss en stund begrunda fakta och se hur spelet ser ut.

I hela den muslimska världen är de dubbla budskapen standard. Det är inte bara imamer och moskédirektörer som använder den taktiken. Också militära och politiska ledare inom islam använder den. I princip går den ut på att vända det leende och inbjudande (!) ansiktet mot fienden och hans offentlighet. Då blir budskapet entydigt: vi har här att göra med en mild, fredlig och generös tradition. Samtidigt tvingar den till militans, aggressivitet och oförsonlighet när den vänder sig till hemmapubliken.

Arafat var i politikens värld en mästare på detta. Han kunde stå i amerikansk tv och tala om ”the peace of the brave” och samma vecka från ett podium i Ramallah förkunna att det totala kriget var enda vägen fram. Nu är förvisso våra lokala moskéföreträdare inte taktiskt skolade i det avseendet. De blottar också sin ytlighet i kontakten med omvärlden. Det finns ickemuslimska rapportörer som förmår avkoda budskapet. Det budskap som erbjöds senast var kopplat till kravet på en ursäkt.

På samma sätt vände sig de iranska mullorna – i samförstånd med de brittiska imamerna – till Salman Rushdie med ett erbjudande om förlåtelse. Om han tog första steget, bad om ursäkt och visade på sin personliga återkomst till islam. Han gjorde som de sa. Men de blev förstås inte nöjda. I den nya självbiografiska boken Joseph Anton berättar Rushdie att det är den enda sak han djupt ångrar under alla åren han levt under fatwans ok. Man skulle kunna sammanfatta det med en liknelse: om du erbjuds en god kaka från imamen ska du inte äta den, för det som ser ut som russin är i själva verket giftampuller som påverkar inte bara tänkandet utan slutligen också andningen. Det är syrefattigt i den världen och det lilla syre som finns vill de inte dela med oss otrogna hundar.

Herrefolket kan ikke lide hunde
Og det er ikke kun rondellhunde:

STAVANGER. Det var på lørdag sist helg, klokken halv elleve på kvelden at en ung gutt var på vei hjem til Stavanger fra Egersund. Toget han skulle ta var blitt innstilt og det var satt opp buss for tog. Gutten hadde hunden sin med seg, noe som er lov på tog. På bussen derimot er det ikke lov, såfremt det ikke dreier seg om buss for tog. Gutten hadde altså rett til å ta med seg hunden sin ombord i bussen.

Det som skulle være en helt vanlig tur hjem, ble istedenfor et mareritt for den unge gutten.På bussen var satt det nemlig også muslimske menn. Sinte muslimske menn. De gikk bort til den enslige norske gutten og truet ham med bank hvis han ikke gikk av. Samtidig gikk de også til bussjåføren og krevde at han ble kastet av. Bussjåføren som tydeligvis var for redd for muslimene, ba da gutten å gå av. På en øde og forlatt veistrekning måtte gutten gå av med hunden sin. Rett før midnatt. Midt på vinteren i minusgrader. Fordi muslimene ikke likte at han hadde en hund. I Norge. Muslimske menn kastet norsk gutt av buss, Gutt med hund følte seg presset av bussen

    Hvorfor tilkaldte chaufføren ikke politiet?
    Det var muslimerne og ikke drengen med hunden, der skulle have været sat af.

    Hvor mærkeligt det end måtte lyde for de fleste
    mennesker så findes, der kun tolv toner.
    Man har måske lige hørt 101 strygger, og synes, at man har
    hørt i tusindvis af toner, og dog er det de selv samme toner, der
    går igen.
    Det er altså de selv samme tolv toner, som tilsammen
    danner grundlaget for alt musik – om det er klassisk
    jazz, rock eller pop, gør ingen forskel.
    Hermed skulle der være kastet lidt lys over
    kompleksiteten.

    Jeg har blot demonstreret, at musik
    i dybeste forstand – teknisk set er avanceret
    matematik, hvilket de fleste mennesker ikke tænker
    over, og det er da heller ikke meningen.
    Musik skal først og fremmest være en glæde og fornøjelse
    både for dem, der spiller musikken og dem der lytter!

    Hvordan det ellers hænger sammen, opdagede Pythagoras de enkle numeriske forhold
    mellem det vi kalder musik-intervaller. En stemt streng vil lyde en oktav højere, hvis dens længde halveres. Hvis længden reduceres til tre fjerdedele, får vi på ligende vis en kvart; hvis den reduceres
    til to tredjedele får vi en kvint. En kvart og en kvint udgøre tilsammen én oktav, dvs.
    4/3 + 3/2 = 2/1. Disse intervaller svarer altså til forholdene i den harmoniske række
    2: 4/3 :1.

    Jan Johansson är/var fantastisk.

    Stort tack till Steen för postning av denna fina musik. En musik som är som balsam.

    Svensk jazz, som egentligen inte alls är jazzmusik….,

    Det är mer som folktonsmelodisk musik….melodier… som är folkmusikpräglade…. …som berättelser….

    Norge!! Muslimer smider dreng med hund af en bus en vinteraften/nat.
    Statsministeren hedder Stoltenberg og er socialdemokrat.
    Som vi alle ved, så borger det for en menneskelig kvalitet, som ikke er af denne verden.
    Derfor er Statsminister Stoltenberg ligeglad med volden mod nordmænd.
    Statsminister Stoltenberg har forladt planeten og går nu i helvedet og hygger sig med
    den kendte ørken-profet.

    For folk som kan deres islam for vantro, kommer annulleringen af Lars Vilks invitation ikke som nogen overraskelse.
    Da det på forhånd er givet, at Vilks ikke vil undskylde og underkaste sig islams højhed, er man selvfølgelig ikke interesseret i en selv iscenesat ydmygelse. Vilks sælger jo hverken mælk, ost, pumper eller andet isenkram til de arabiske lande.

  • Allan Hansen

    Kære “hilnar,, hvad sker der nu med dig?
    Endnu en patologisk hjerne blødning!
    Jeg sender dig en Citar og et par solbriller.
    Undskyld, der skulle stå solkrem.
    God fornøjelse.

    Hvad er rigtig jazz?

  • Allan Hansen

    Ja, det er den fede jazz!
    Som du ved spiller jeg også piano – jazz piano.

    Happy Birthday Miles Davis

    Miles Dewey Davis III was born on May 26, 1926 in Alton, Illinois. Miles’ mother was a blues pianist though she kept this hidden from him and his father a dentist. Davis began studying trumpet at the age of thirteen with local musician Elwood Buchanan and Buchanan would always stress to Miles to play without using vibrato which is one of the influences in his unique sound. Miles also cites Clark Terry as an early influence. By the age of sixteen Davis was playing professionally in the area with Eddie Randle’s band, the Blue Devils, and in 1944 Miles played with Billy Eckstein’s band in town for a week along side Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. While Davis could have left high school to begin his career it was very important to his parents he finished high school and continued his education at Julliard School of Music in New York City. Miles left Julliard after one year complaining their focus was far too centered around European Classical music or ‘white’ music though acknowledging the music theory he learned there was useful to him. Davis began performing with Coleman Hawkins and Eddie ‘Lockjaw’ Davis in several clubs on 52nd St. and recorded for the first time in 1945 with Herbie Fields.

    In 1945 Dizzy Gillespie left his band with Charlie Parker and Miles became his replacement along with Max Roach, Al Haig and Curley Russell. Davis can be heard on Parker’s famous album ‘Now’s the Time’ already finding his unique voice in Jazz and foreshadowing what would come next in Jazz. On a West Coast tour with Parker, Miles did some work with Charles Mingus and they also shared an apartment for some time and Davis also toured with Billy Eckstein’s band which eventually brought him back to New York. In 1948 Davis began working with arranger and composer Gil Evans as well as Gerry Mulligan, John Lewis and Max Roach in effort to create beautiful music that wasn’t solely focused on instrumentalism as Bebop can be. Their work can be heard on the 1956 album ‘Birth of the Cool’ and heavily influenced what we know now as the Cool movement in Jazz. In 1955 Miles formed the first great quintet with John Coltrane, Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. This band provided a perfect balance musically and some of their albums from this period include ‘Relaxin with the Miles Davis Quintet’, ‘Steamin with the Miles Davis Quintet’, ‘Workin with the Miles Davis Quintet’ and ‘Cookin with the Miles Davis Quintet’. In 1958 Davis added Cannonball Adderley to mix and the now famous sextet recorded the album ‘Milestones’ and shortly changed some of the members of the band with the addition of Bill Evans and Jimmy Cobb and recorded the album ‘1958 Miles’.

    Also during this time period Miles worked again with Gil Evans on a series of albums including ‘Miles Ahead’ in ’57, ‘Porgy and Bess’ in ’58 and ‘Sketches of Spain’ in ’59. In 1959 Davis brought his sextet back into the studio and recorded ‘Kind of Blue’ which is regarded as a masterpiece and has sold over four million copies to date. In 1960 Coltrane left Miles to put together his own quartet and other members of the rhythm section went on their own paths by 1963. Davis quickly formed a new band though with George Coleman, Ron Carter, Tony Williams and Herbie Hancock and together they recorded the albums ‘Seven Steps to Heaven’ and ‘In Europe’ in 1963 and ‘My Funny Valentine’ and ‘Four and More’ in 1964. This group would play the same material as Davis’ first quartet but the music was much more intense and aggressive reflecting the turmoil in the 1960s. Coleman left in 1964 and Miles was able to pursued Wayne Shorter to leave Art Blakey and join him. With Shorter on tenor saxophone the second great quintet was formed. Some of the albums made by this group include ‘E.S.P.’ and ‘The Complete Live at the Plugged Nickel 1965’ in 1965, ‘Miles Smiles’ in 1966, ‘Sorcerer’ and ‘Nefertiti’ in 1967 and ‘Miles in the Sky’ and ‘Filles de Killimanjaro’ in 1968. Davis began using electric instruments on the albums in 1968, foreshadowing what would be next and by the time those records were done being recorded the band had changed with the additions of Chick Corea and Dave Holland.

    Miles recorded ‘In a Silent Way’ in 1969 marking the new change in music and the beginning of the technological revolution with a band that included Hancock, Corea, Joe Zawinul, Shorter, Holland, John McLaughlin and Tony Williams. Shortly after Jack DeJohnette replaced Tony on drums and with the additions of Airto Moreira and Bennie Maupin ‘Bitches Brew’ was recorded and went gold by 1976. Davis recorded several live albums in the early ‘70s followed by ‘A Tribute to Jack Johnson’ in 1971 and ‘On the Corner’ in 1972. Miles would switch up band members often in the 1970s always searching for the right balance and chemistry and some other albums recorded in the 1970s include ‘Big Fun’ and ‘Get Up With It’ in 1974 and ‘Dark Magnus’, ‘Agharta’ and ‘Pangaea’ in ’74 and 1975. In late 1970s Davis took time off from music to recharge and enjoy certain aspects of life without constantly being on the road before making his return in 1979. Miles recorded ‘The Man with the Horn’ from ’79-’81 followed by the album ‘We Want Miles’. Some of the new members of Davis’ band from this time period include saxophonist Bill Evans, Marcus Miller, John Scofield, Al Foster, Mino Cinelu and Robert Irving III. Miles continued exploring new ideas in music until the end and some of his final albums include ‘Tutu’ in 1986, ‘Amandla’, ‘Doo-Bop’ and finally ‘Miles & Quincy Live at Montreux’ in 1991. Miles Davis passed away in September, 1991.

    Davis leaves a legacy and influence so large in Jazz, American culture and music internationally it is even hard to describe. Miles is a cultural icon and even today his music and image still provokes a certain idea of individualism and greatness that one can only of dream of aspiring to. Just a few of the awards won by Miles include over ten Grammy Awards, star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Knighted into the Legion of Honor, Sonning Award for Lifetime Achievement in Music and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Miles Davis’ music has touched the lives of millions of people in several generations and leaves a legacy unmatched by any musical performer of modern times. Miles Davis Lives!
