    Jan Johansson was a jazz pianist who died 1968 ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Johansson_(jazz_musician) ) and this song, "Visa från Utanmyra" is a classic old Swedish folksong that has been done in several renditions - his being focused on a 1960's jazz sensibility.

    The entire record "Jazz på Svenska" ("Jazz in Swedish") is worth a listen where Johansson interprets old folk songs in to a Jazz style.
    The song "Visa från Utanmyra" has several extremely good versions (I suggest Wintergatans version)
