Album cover - The Goodman style

the musician : Anders Burman
the album : The Goodman style
the artist : Stig Söderqvist
the date : 1955

Metronome Records was founded in Stockholm 1949 by the jazz drummer Anders Burman, his brother Lars and a friend, Börje Ekberg. A Danish division was founded in 1950 and a German in 1954. Starting with 78s, the first 10" jazz LP was issued in 1951. Another about 10 LPs followed, before the first EP-album was released in 1953. This format was dominated into the early 1960s then the 12" LP broke through.Then, in the 1960s, Metronome more and more went to pop music.

Stig Söderqvist was the house designer at Metronome. He was also known as a top jazz musician, playing trumpet and valve trombone with Bernt Rosengren and others. Söderqvist created hundreds of covers for the label, sometimes with excellent liner drawings which shows affenity to the works of David Stone Martin.

The label Karusell was started by the Swedish bassplayer and bandleader Simon Brehm in 1952. Mostly a label for pop music, but also jazz. Worth mention is the co-operation with Norman Granz. Among other things it came to some recordings by American musicians in Sweden. Simon Brehm died in 1967 and Karusell was sold to Polygram.
