I must have that man – Erik Berndalen 2008
During a concert at the Golden Washboard Festival in Ilawa Poland Swedish trumpet player Erik Berndalen is featured in a beautiful tune. In my own collection I had this by Billy Holiday with Teddy Wilson and Buck Clayton in 1937. If you type in this title on youtube you’ll find other versions by Abbey Lincoln, Billy Holiday and Adelaide Hall.
It is a tune from around 1928 and Adelaide Hall recorded it then with Duke Ellington Other great artists who have done it then as well were Jimmy Noone, Joe Venuti Jack Hylton. It came up again in the late thirties with Benny Goodman and also by Ella Fitzgerald.
In this session Erik is backed up by Mikael Cinthio clarinet, Dymitr Markiewicz trombone and in the rhythm group Wojtek Kaminski piano, Wiktor Zydron and Pawel Tarntanus banjos, Kuba Olejnik bass
