Any one who listens to this blog will know that I listen to all kinds of music but despite this I do have a few favourite songs. One of them is One by Metallica – which to me is a song of great power and one of the greatest anti war songs ever written. Look at the old boys rock recently and enjoy the original video.

My Swedish friend Marcus recently introduced me to some Swedish Jazz and the music of pianist Jan Johansson in particular. Jan combined Swedish folk music with jazz in a very unique style of composition and piano playing, which I find very refreshing ! Jan’s music has great power and transcends many of the traditional boundaries of jazz ! Fans of the likes of John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk will enjoy Jan’s unique approach to jazz !
