Judith Nijland Quartet – A Jazz Tribute to ABBA:

If you like jazz and surprises
Many jazz standards have their origin in Broadway musicals and popular songs from yesteryear. So why couldn’t today’s jazz revert to songs from the 70s? Waterloo, Dancing Queen or I Have A Dream. Famous, perhaps even played a bit too frequently. But what about Waterloo as a jazz ballad or Money, Money, Money in swing?

Dutch Jazz singer Judith Nijland dared to think outside of the box and with her band she reinvented the vast repertoire of the Swedish group. Together they tackled a large number of famous and some more obscure songs. The songs remain intact, but jazz takes over. The result is a creative musical outburst. The audience will be swayed back and forth between recognition and surprise, and ABBA will never sound quite the same again.

About Judith Nijland
After graduating from studying the classics, Greek and Latin, Judith studied Jazz at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague (NL). Judith focuses more on writing her own material, but jazz remains her true love.

Judith has released 5 albums, received great reviews, lots of radio airplay and has been touring in her own as well as many other countries in Europe plus New York, Thailand, Australia, Indonesia and Japan.

‘That A Jazz Tribute to ABBA turned out to be so extraordinary excellent is a result of the studious, professional and creative way Nijland and her band arranged the songs.’
