Jazz på svenska ("Jazz in Swedish") is an album by the Swedish jazz pianist Jan Johansson. It was issued in 1964 and consists of jazz arrangements of Swedish folk songs. All arrangements are very sparse, consisting only of Johansson on piano and Georg Riedel on double bass. It went on to become the best selling Swedish jazz album of all time, selling a quarter of a million copies.

Jazz på Svenska: Gammal bröllospmarsch (Jan Johansson). Jan Johansson - Two traditional polskas ("Forest Harmonies")  . Jan Johansson (16 September 1931 - 9 November 1968) was a Swedish jazz pianist. Jan Johansson/Rune Gustafsson Quartet playing Night In Tunesia.

Johansson treats Jazz på Svenska’s source material with the utmost care, placing the folk songs’ emotions and timeless essence at the fore. He eschews the free form and fusion inclinations of the day, choosing instead to faithfully and directly interpret the collection of age-old songs, polkas and marches. Nothing more is needed as Johansson was clearly aware. He is quoted as saying that he was drawn to the pieces by the parallels he drew between them and jazz. It's enough just to play them as they are.

These piano+bass tracks are contemplative, quietly energetic jazz takes on Swedish folk tunes. The music has a chilly sparkle and idiosyncratic charm that sounds as fresh in 2015 as it did when I first heard it in the '70s. The style is mellow enough for background music, but the closer you listen to these gems the more you will find to appreciate.
