Instant Swing

Instant Swing

A healthy Gothenburg swing / bebop band, which alternates jazz standards with well-known rock / pop songs in their own jazz arrangements.

“A fresh Gothenburg swing band, who also dare to play modern pop songs in a classic vintage.

Singer Anna-My Zetterberg is an experienced singer and has a berry, mature and pleasant personal voice with a real feeling. The musicians Ole Jörgensen, scissors, clarinet and flute, Sten Löfman, grand piano, Jörgen Svensson, bass, and Anders Söderling, drums are all seasoned musicians with fervor.

It really revolves around them and they play a very infectious music. Standard songs associated with Billie Holiday, Gershwin and other immortal greats are tastefully interspersed with current songs by Sting, Vaya Con Dios and Melody Gardot. It is exciting that modern pop songs work well in such contexts.

A good and just right mixture, which lasts a long time. The musicians are aware and know this repertoire. Sten Löfman and Ole Jörgensen are strong soloists, offering ingenious improvisations. Competence very driving and Anna-My an exciting and personal singer. ”

We also do a one-hour program with Swedish texts under the motto "Was it really better before?" - with songs and lyrics by Olle Adolphson, Hasse & Tage, Povel Ramel, Bill Evans and others.

We do mostly concert programs but also like to play in other contexts.
