DUKE ELLINGTON WITH ALICE BABS
Stockholm 1969 [no label, 2CD]
Praise God and Dance. Live at the Gustav Vasa Church, Stockholm, Sweden; November 6, 1969. Originally aired on Swedish TV on December 25, 1969. Fairly to very good audio (ripped from video stream).

Alice Babs was a Swedish singer and actress. She worked in a wide number of genres - Swedish folklore, Elizabethan songs and opera. While she was best known internationally as a jazz singer, Babs also competed as Sweden’s first annual competition entrant in the Eurovision Song Contest 1958. In 1972 she was named Sweden’s Royal Court Singer, the first non-opera singer as such. She passed away in 2014 at the age of 90.
