Discussion on the situation of jazz musicians

Discussion about the jazz musicians' situation is currently underway on OJ's website:

The debate began with this article by IMPRA's chairman Lina Nyberg, and then followed a panel debate in SR's Mitt i Musiken:

The Swedish Jazz network (which also includes IMPRA) has been working for a year trying to get politicians to pay attention to jazz's overlooked position. At the end of last year, Bosse Ringholm (S) discussed this with the Minister of Culture Lena Adelson Liljeroth -

To clarify the inequality between the institutions and the free musical life, some figures come from the Cultural Council -
(the distribution is about the same now)
Regional County Music Foundations SEK 458 million,
Swedish National Concerts 69 million,
Regional Orchestras 433 million,
Opera House 829 million,
Free Music Groups 10 million,
Organizing music associations approx. 40 million,
Phonogram support 7 million

(Support for jazz music is included in free music groups /Arr.Musikför./Phonogramstöd and to some extent Länsmusiken)
