Jazz In Sweden: 1949-1961 Metronome The Legendary Years is a true collector's-item box set. The Metronome label was established in 1949 by a few young jazz enthusiasts in Stockholm. Until it was bought by WEA, the label recorded talented Swedish jazz musicians as well as great American musicians. They made tremendous contributions to cultivating the rich jazz tradition in Sweden and connecting prominent American musicians to the Nordic jazz scene.

This premium box set is a compilation of 160 tracks on nine CDs, all recorded in the golden years between 1949 and 1961. They feature great Swedish musicians such as Lars Gullin, Arne Domnerus and Ake Persson as well as visiting stars including Stan Getz, Tommy Flanagan, Quincy Jones, Clifford Brown, Sonny Clark, Art Farmer, Zoot Sims, Coleman Hawkins, James Moody, Elvin Jones, Duke Jordan, Ernestine Anderson and many, many others.

This special limited edition comes with an all-color, 116-page booklet, which is full of photos of musicians and original record jackets. While the detailed notes are provided in Japanese, discographical information is also provided in English, so the listener does not have to guess who's playing what in each track. There is a great variety of swinging, straight-ahead jazz, played by top-notch musicians. There are big bands and small combos, amazing arrangements and inspired solos. What we love about jazz is all here!

Eastwind Import has secured just a few copies of this extraordinary collector's item, specially designed, packaged and digitally remastered for the Japanese market. Order yours before they are gone forever!

NOTE: Since we cannot list all 160 tracks on 9 discs, we decided to provide the track listing (and sample tracks) of Disc 1 only, featuring Harry Arnold, Quincy Jones and The Swedish Radio Studio Orchestra.

SHIPPING: This set comes in a fairly large box and weighs approximately 1 lb 10 oz. A flat shipping rate of $13 will be charged for this item for domestic (US) customers (Priority Mail), and $16 for international customers (First Class International).
