Ever since the end of World War II, the exchange of musical ideas between jazzmen of various nations has gained increasing incidence, particularly in Scandinavia. It was in Sweden that the first outstanding modern jazz soloists were contributed by Europe to the international discographies; and it was in Sweden that a number of happy unions took place between American and Swedish jazzmen, resulting in the production of such successful sessions as the two represented on this album. Jazz Abroad (1955) indicates decisively that men like Quincy Jones, Roy Haynes and their confrères are musically at ease in the company of such distinguished Swedish contemporaries, as are heard with them here. A numbered, limited edition of 500 copies pressed on Audiophile Clear Vinyl (ACV).
