In the year 2024, Swedish jazz vocalist Alice Babs would have turned 100 years old! We’re celebrating this by releasing a digital compilation album with all her gems from Caprice Music’s catalogue – they’re not many, but they’re darn good! And the selection shows her development over a large part of her illustrious career, from the very earliest tentative notes in the late 1930s, to her legendary collaboration with jazz giant Duke Ellington in the 1970s.

This extensive compilation album is available to stream and download on most digital outlets, such as Spotify and Tidal.
