Paul and his Gang was founded in Malmoe, Sweden by Paul Bocciolone Strandberg in 1990. At the most prestigious jazz festival for “old style jazz” in Breda, Holland they won the first prize in 1992. Their genuine interpretations of early jazz created an interest also in the US where Stomp Off Records released a CD (Stomp Off CD 1329) and in the spring of 2000 the band made a tour playing in Kenosha, Chicago and in Toronto. The exciting material on this CD are live recordings from this occasion.
