Thanks for sharing this old Kjell Öhman record! I have heard him before, but not on a record as far back as from the swinging 60s.

He has a really great right hand, and great feeling, but unfortunately he doesn't play the bass lines himself, so it's hard to judge how good he really is.

A complete jazz organ player handles the bass lines himself in my book.

I believe Pierre Svärd might be the best complete jazz organist in Sweden of today.

Thanks again.

obviously, Celo hasn't heard something about Pierre Swärd. He is one of the funkiest organists in whole Europe. Listen to his Cds:
- Jazz 'n' Soul
- Groove Factor
- Up And At It

nevertheless, Öhmann is great.
