Det Var en Gång (Do Music Records)
Equally well-versed in jazz as in folk music, legendary saxophonist Roland Keijser's prolific professional career spans five decades and his versatility and extensive command of various reed instruments has earned him an unimpeachable stature in the Swedish jazz community. Late pianist Gösta Rundqvist (died in 2010) is no less of a legend, and was in his lifetime regarded as one of Sweden's finest and most original jazz artists, joining forces with the likes of Toots Thielemans, Monica Zetterlund and Putte Wickman. Do Music Records is proud to present possibly the final existing recordings with the duo made up of Keijser and Rundqvist, as they engage in intimate two-part conversations as well as energetic quartet constellations. This packed double-CD presents music compiled from archive recordings from various points in their career, professional as well as live bootleg recordings, capturing these masters in absolute top form.
