JAZZ - in Sweden and abroad

JAZZ photos and videos

by yours truly, Hans SM0BYD,

and I hope that you´ll dig ´em!

Enjoy and keep swingin´!




The early videos from the mid 1990s, were shot with a Panasonic camera and the more recent from 2008 and on, with my simple digital camera brought along, in line: Canon Ixus 300, Ixus 500, a Powershot A2000IS

with which I took a salt water dip and had to be replaced with the latest used, an Ixus 95IS.

The old b/w photos are shot with my then Nikon F, a 105mm:2,5 lens and Kodak TRI-X.

A few videos will consequently, in due time, also be uploaded.

Red MItchell receives the swedish Illis quorum gold medal, by a representative of the swedish Government.

The year is 1991 and the place; Jazzclub Fasching in Stockholm

(at this event, NO swedish journalist or newspaper photographer was present. I offered all of the newspapers to use my photos,

NO interest at all...

Shame on all of them, for totally neglecting this very special event! But, through a friend, a tip to call a daily in Dalecarlia, gave

result and they published one of the photos shown here, and a comment, on the front page.


Keith Moore "Red" Mitchell, b. September 20 1927 in N.Y.C. and d. November 8 1992 in Salem, Oregon.

Illis Quorum (Illis Quorum Meruere Labores) - a medal awarded for outstanding contributions to swedish culture, science or

society... Illis Quorum was instituted in 1785 and is the oldest swedish governmental medal.

Here, try the SM0BYD Red Mitchell slide show...from a very unique jazz event in Stockholm, Sweden...so...enjoy...(I hope)
