Miff Görling

Miff Görling.

Uno "Miff" Görling (March 21, 1909, Stockholm – February 24, 1988, Stockholm) was a Swedish jazz bandleader, trombonist, arranger, and composer. His brother was Zilas Görling.

Görling, who took his nickname from trombonist Miff Mole, got his start late in the 1920s with Frank Vernon's orchestra, where he played until 1932. He then worked with Arne Hülphers, Gösta Jonsson, Seymour Österwall, and Gösta Säfbom before organizing his own ensemble in 1938. He led bands into the 1950s, and also did arrangement and composition work for other jazz groups as well as for popular Swedish musicians.[1]
