Country & Eastern is the swedish label for you who love listening to the international music equivalent of slow food - al dente music.

The group Berger Knutsson Spering was what actually triggered the start of the C&E label in 2005, due to the fact that the Amigo label that had released our first three albums found that we did not bring in enough money to the Bonnier family that had bought the label. So they did not want to release our new album. Well, why not do it on our own we thought. So I, Bengt Berger, of the Berger Knutsson Spering trio took charge of the whole thing, thinking that from my studies in India and Ghana I have a lot of unique and very valuable recordings of great music that had been released in a very limited fashion and that we could think of a lot of other music that we were involved in that was screaming for release . We asked some friends to donate 5.000 SEK each so that we could get started and got enough money for the first releases and ever since we release music with the following guidelines: Country & Eastern will produce live music and albums with what we consider Great music regardless of style

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
