Slide Hampton and Umeå Big Band, Pori Jazz 1972


In Pori Jazz 1972 played Umeå Big Band with trombonist Slide Hampton.

Thanks to UBB’s trumpetist Alf Burstedt, I was able to name all the players in the pictures. Alf  wrote to me: “Umeå Big Band don´t exist today, but some of the musicians are still playing in other bands. Our Jazz grand old man Lars Lystedt, 87 years, is still going strong and plays his trombone.” – Unfortunately I did not take a picture of Lars Lysted – or Alf.

All the players of the band in 1972 are listed here.

Slide Hampton has made at least one LP with UBB: “Umeå Big Band ‎– Slide Hampton In Montreux“, released 1971.

Here is a link to video of UBB nine years later, 1981. Sounds very nice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUIfF1XwMHE
