Nils Bertil Dahlander (or Bert Dahlander as he was called) was a fine Swedish jazz drummer, born in Mölndal in 1928 and dead in Mesquite, Nevada, USA in 2011. Dahlander studied violin and piano initially, then led a quartet and played in a radio band headed by Thore Ehrling. After recording with Lars Gullin in 1951 and 1952, Dahlander moved to America in 1954, becoming part of the house band at Chicago’s Bee Hive. He worked a year with Terry Gibbs, toured Europe with Chet Baker in 1955 and 1956, then reunited with Gullin, recording with him in 1956 and 57. There was another stint with Gibbs, then he spent three years in Teddy Wilson’s trio. Dahlander worked in 1965 with Earl Hines, then settled in Aspen in 1966. He played there with Ralph Sutton and Peanuts Hucko, and participated in several Colorado Jazz Party series concerts. During the ’70s, Dahlander played often in Finland and Sweden, taking time in ’73 for a reunion recording engagement with Hines.
