Urban Hansson

Urban Hansson, born June 6, 1943. Saxophone and flute. He studied saxophone in the USA with Booker Ervin. Hansson was a member of the Swedish group “The Gimmicks”. Between 1969- 73 he travelled all over the world doing radio, television and recording work with them. He used to have a program on the Swedish radio called “Jazzbetonat”, which translates rather aptly: “Emphasis On Jazz”.

“Emphasis On Jazz” was the name of the group he formed together with piano player Berndt Egerbladh in 1976. The group's first LP (simply called “Emphasis on Jazz”) was released in 1977. It was the object of considerable international critical acclaim and was released in Japan under the title of “Sengakuji”, which was an allusion to a famous Tokyo temple.
