Swedish pianist anc composer Berndt Egerbladh was born on March 1, 1932 and died on March 2, 2004. He had a long career but had relatively few opportunities to record as a leader. leaving only 16 albums under his name. His 1988 album A Boy Full of Thoughts
had achieved something of a cult status among ardent jazz fans, and became a big hit when Atelier Sawano reissued it in Japan in 2005.
Mr. Sawano went on to two more albums by Egerbladh--Mousse au Chocolat
and Sweet and Lovely
--before he passed away. His elegant piano playing and amazing talent as composer will continue to delight us.
