Primary Instrument: Band/ensemble/orchestra
From southern Sweden and the area around the coastal town of Malmö, Tolvan Big Band has been developing to become a powerhouse organisation with an international reputation of the most up-to-date and ambitious Big Bands anywhere in the world. Since around 1979 its musical leader Helge Albin, creative Saxophonist, and composer and arranger has emerged to devote much of his time and energy to organising the band into a successful ensemble capable of a vide variety of musical situations. The proof of this success can be heard clearly in their recordings, sometimes in the company of very celebrated guests. And of course in their Live performances.
