JAZZ PROFEZZOR IN THE SUN
As so often I went to Bullandö, a big leisure boat harbour in the Stockholm archipelago, to hit the greatest ice cream bar in all of the worl.... well best in Sweden. And it's not really ice cream but gelato, the italian style ice cream but.... it's great. And it's right in the middle of the harbour beside the restuarant. I was there with my grandkids for ice cream. This day the sun was just screaming down on us.
But on the bar veranda there where a little jazz band playing in the screaming sun. And they where good! Not my style of music but you know, when well played and with that nice feeling, every kind of music is nice. So I listened for a long time. They called them selfes Profezzor jazz. But something caught my eye. Did I know one of them? On the keyboard there where someone familiar. Took me a while to realize who he where. It was my banker. Or rather the head investment strategist of SEB, one of the 4 large swedish banks, Johan Hagbarth. And .... well he's not really my banker either, but I on and off get invited to lectures and sometimes I go and sometimes he's there to talk. So as it turns out, he's a banker extraordinaire!
Profezzor jazz are, apart from two brothers Hagbarth, also Bengt Toresson and, on drums, Örjan Sölvell ho is a doctor and professor at Stockholm school of economics. So you get how they choose their name. Anway they are good musicians and I wish them all the best!
