Liseberg, Gothenburg, July 8, 1970

2nd concert

Konserthallen, Liseberg where the concerts took place

Cat Anderson plays The Birth Of The Blues

A couple of weeks ago, the website published Ellington’s first concert at the Liseberg amusement park in Goethburg on July 7, 1970. Today, we also make available the second concert. DESS members can download and listen to it in the Goodies Room.”. NDESOR shows only the first part of this concert but after we had been able to locate the rest of the concert, a correction sheet was posted by DEMS. We enclose the comments from the 2nd last DEMS Bulletin, published in 2012 by Sjef Hoefsmit.
