Nils Landgren’s “Christmas With My Friends” is a faithful companion at Christmas time and the repertoire is almost inexhaustible. The eighth edition also presents a varied selection of international, Swedish, traditional and modern Christmas songs as well as atmospheric secular popular songs in the familiar quiet and intimate mood.
For large numbers of people, Nils Landgren’s Christmas albums are now a part of their holiday season, just like advent calendars or mistletoe.
Seventeen years ago, trombonist / singer Landgren, one of the brightest stars in the European jazz firmament, brought together some of his closest musical companions. To get themselves into the mood for Christmas, they set off on a tour of churches in Sweden and Germany. The album which resul-ted from that first tour, ‘Christmas With My Friends’, was described by one critic as “the most beautiful of all Christmas CDs.” Ever since then, Landgren and his friends have been repeating this special way of celebrating Christmas every other year.
That time has come round again: ‘Christmas With My Friends VIII’ is ready to take its place among the presents under the tree.
