A Jazz Tribute to ABBA (Netherlands)

Monday 17 February 7.00pm

Many jazz standards have their origin in Broadway musicals and popular songs from yesteryear. So why couldn’t today’s jazz revert to songs from the 70s? WaterlooDancing Queen or I Have A Dream. Famous, perhaps even played a bit too frequently. But what about Waterloo as a jazz ballad or Money, Money, Money in swing?

Dutch Jazz singer Judith Nijland dared to think outside of the box and with her band she reinvented the vast repertoire of the Swedish group. Together they tackled a large number of famous and some more obscure songs. The songs remain intact, but jazz takes over. The result is a creative musical outburst. The audience will be swayed back and forth between recognition and surprise, and ABBA will never sound quite the same again.

‘Judith Nijland is top of the bill jazz’
Dutch Broadcasting

‘That A Jazz Tribute to ABBA turned out to be so extraordinary excellent is a result of the studious, professional and creative way Nijland and her band arranged the songs.’
