"Wermland Big Band". From swinging jazz to shakin 'rock n roll.

Värmland is now making a real impression in the big band world by creating their own big band. Some of the sharpest musicians set out on tour and offer the audience a rich musical experience.

Rigmor Gustafsson is unique on the Swedish jazz scene. Three of her albums have sold gold, an outstanding hindsight as Värmland Rigmor is all alone on. When Rigmor 2005 was awarded his first gold record for "Close To You" had no gold disc distributed to a Swedish jazz singer since 1991. Even at that time it was a Värmländ honored, Monica Zetterlund with the album "Care."

Through the years, Rigmor received a number of awards. Besides three gold records, she received a Grammy for best Swedish jazz record and assigned to the Royal Academy of Music's Jazz Award. She has also been elected to the year of Värmland and received Thore Ehrling scholarship. In January 2015she was awarded the Royal Medal litteris et artibus and since the fall of 2015, she is also an adjunct professor at Ingesunds Music. She tours frequently with own quartet in Europe but also appears as a guest artist in other constellations. In addition to his performances at various concert stages, she has made several television appearances, including on the banquette, Crown Princess Victoria's birthday and wedding, Sing-along at Skansen, and most recently in the track.

"To Rigmor Gustafsson is one of Sweden's best jazz singers we already knew. It impresses on the new album's songwriter Gustafsson. Along with Ollie Olson and lyricist Tomas Backlund, she has composed new songs with a sound as if they were taken from The Great American Songbook" Mans Owl NA 4/5
