Happy Birthday on August 4. Your Fans and Hans Bebop.
Carl-Gustaf 1965.
Here is a photo from the mid 60s when I played drums in the Swedish band The Weepers.
My wonderful red Trixon drums. Inspired by Lionel Hampton.
I remember that two of my drums was broken so I had to borrow one yellow and one white from a friend.
"Born in Sweden 1942. It means that I was a teenager in the great era of the 1950s. Listening to jazz music on the radio "The Voice of America" with Willis Canover. Especially bebop with Bird and Dizzy got directly to my heart. I played altosax for a few years, but drums was my main instrument. When Rock n´ Roll and pop music changed the music world I played in a pop band. But I have always had my roots in jazz. Living in Stockholm at that time, I went to many jazzconcerts and listened to Lionel Hampton (my big idol), Basie, Ellington, Armstrong, Goodman and of course Jatp with all the jazz stars. Glad to have the autographs today.
In the 60s I worked as an Assistent Deck Steward on M/S Gripsholm, Swedish American Line. Nice cruises in the West Indies and Around the World CLICK FOR WEBSITE
Later I worked as a journalist and photographer for 25 years. I took some pictures of jazzmusicians. I only wish I had taken many more. In my job I met many interesting people. Astronaut James B Irwin, for example, who I photographed together with the King of Sweden at the Castle in 1976. When the Swedish astronaut Christer Fuglesang met King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia i 2007, I was invited to the Castle to take some photos again. Nice experience for a retired photographer CLICK FOR WEBSITE
In 2005 I got in contact with Hans Bebop, Jazz  Expert in Holland. Soon I found out that we were "soulbrothers" with the same interest in drums, Hamp, Jatp, Bebop, tennis and more. Many thanks Hans for the fantastic websites with a lot of great jazz music, videos, photos and interesting info."

Mästerfotografen Bengt H Malmqvist är död.
Fotografen Bengt H Malmqvist, som 24 oktober fyllde 80 år, har avlidit. Bengt var under 50- och början 60-talet tidningen Orkesterjournalens husfotograf och dokumenterade då det mesta som hände i jazz-Sverige. Han har tagit bilderna till oräkneliga skivomslag och svarat för massor av fotoutställningar. 1998 kom han ut med boken Stjärnornas fotograf, som visar runt 200 av hans utsökta artistporträtt. 

Bengt H. Malmqvist - The Star Photographer.
No one else has taken so many great photos of jazz musicians in Sweden during the 1950s and 1960s as Bengt H. Malmqvist. A true document. Fantastic pictures on thousands of record covers. But not only jazz. In the 1970s he was ABBAs personal photographer in their early career. And of course many other artists on different record labels. He also had many appreciated photo exhibitions. I remember in my teens, every time I opened the Swedish jazz magazine Orkesterjournalen I saw his name under pictures of Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Lester Young and so on. A few years ago I had the honour of meeting this remarkable person, at his home here in the south of Sweden. Being a photographer myself he was like a hero to me. In 2008 he died 80 years old.

"Jazz at the Philharmonic - det låter som poesi i mina öron. Jag känner mig priviligierad som fått förm
ånen att uppleva fyra Jatp-konserter i Stockholm på 1950-talet, där många av världens bästa jazzmusiker 
uppträdde. Det var i mina tidiga tonår och jag lyckades även få många autografer, som är speciellt trevligt att 
ha idag. Som till exempel Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Coleman Hawkins, Gene Krupa, Stan Getz, 
Roy Eldridge och flera andra. Även Norman Granz själv, vilket lär vara ganska ovanligt.
Annars var min store idol Lionel Hampton och hans storband. Jag gick också för att lyssna på Duke Ellington, 
Count Basie, Benny Goodman och Louis Armstrong. Inte att förglömma Bebop-perioden på 40-50-talet.
Senare arbetade jag som fotograf och har plåtat några av de gamla jazzidolerna.
Ja, det var verkligen härligt svängig musik som lever än, inte minst på internet. Stort tack till min vän
Hans Bebop från Holland, som är webmaster för flera fina hemsidor om JATP, Hampton och Bebop-perioden.

"Jazz at the Philharmonic" - the words are like poetry to me. I feel priviliged to have been to four of the 
Jatp concerts in Stockholm in the 1950s where many of the worlds greatest jazzmusicians performed. 
I was in my early teens and got some very nice autographs too. Rare items today. For example Dizzy Gillespie,
Ella Fitzgerald, Coleman Hawkins, Gene Krupa, StanGetz, Roy Eldridge and many others. Also Norman Granz 
himself wich is quite  unusual, I guess. My jazzidol No. 1 was Lionel Hampton and his big band.
I also went to here Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman and Louis Armstrong. 
And dont forget the Bebop. Yes, it really was a great jazz era. And the music lives on in the memory, 
at the records and now also on internet. Thanks to my jazzfriend from Holland, Hans Bebop, for doing such a
great job on these websites of- JATP- Hampton's Music and more -
