If you think modern hard-swinging jazz and languorous ballads rooted in tradition but forward-looking with star soloists and refined arrangements sound exciting, then you have found the right band. SJO celebrates its fortieth year as a jazz band in 2024. The band wants to present modern swinging big band jazz rooted in tradition with inspiration from contemporary jazz music.

During these 40 years, the band has traveled to many parts of the world, including the United States, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, South Africa, England, Ireland, Switzerland, Spain, Denmark, Norway and Finland. Clubs such as the Village Vanguard in New York, Ronnie Scott’s in London and festivals such as Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Skeppsholmen Jazz Festival, Festival International Cervantino in Guanajuato in Mexico among others have also been part of the band’s venues.

The band has previously released 18 albums and in February “Horizon” with music by Martin Sjöstedt was released on Ubuntu Records in England, which received rave reviews in the major jazz magazines in England and elsewhere. In September, a CD with music by Göran Strandberg will be released, the fifth in the collaboration between the SJO and this great jazz personality in Sweden.

Countless radio recordings have been made over the years when the band basically functioned as a radio jazz group for several years. The guest list is long with names like Bob Brookmeyer, Bob Mintzer, Bob Florence, Mel Lewis, Jim McNeely, Maria Schneider, Bill Holman, Monica Zetterlund, Toots Thielemans, Susana Rinaldo, Juan-Jose Mosalini, Carlos Franzetti, Jan Allan, Stan Tracey, Norma Winstone, Dick Oatts, Gary Smulyan, Steve Slagle, Rigmor Gustafsson, YellowJackets to name a few.

In recent years, the band has played more music written and arranged by people in the band such as Martin Sjöstedt, Karl-Martin Almqvist etc.
This evening the big band will play music that in some way summarizes these 40 years and all the music that has been achieved.
