Featuring Erik Lindström with his vibraphone in three songs, this album presents nine musicians. They have all been awarded the Erik Lindström grant. Established in 2002 and managed by Music Archive Finland, the Erik Lindström Fund supports young Finnish musicians and their studies abroad. The annual awarding ceremony is usually arranged around Lindström's birthday in May.

The idea for the collaborative album came from Erik Lindström in 2009 when he gave a concert with Joonas Haavisto, Ville Herrala, Olavi Louhivuori and Verneri Pohjola. A year later producers Wade Mikkola and Ari Poutiainen began to contact the grantees in order to discuss and design the contents of the album. With the Finnish Cultural Foundation's kind support, the project began to take shape.

As a result, a significant and unique meeting of jazz generations took place in August 2011. Erik Lindström's long career goes back to the golden jazz age, whereas the young performers represent the cream of the contemporary jazz scene in Finland. Furthermore, the producers, who are experienced musicians, educators and messengers of the jazz tradition, serve as a bridging generation in between.

Since its arrival on the public scene in the early 20th century, jazz has been characterised by a remarkable ability to cross musical, social and cultural borderlines. In terms of musical style and character, jazz has often crossed genre categories and undergone radical changes. In terms of geographical and cultural boundaries, one of the most notable developments in jazz has been the internationalisation of its sound.

The Jazz Chameleon traces generical, geographical, historical and other crossings in jazz. The writings are based on the papers that were presented in the 9th Nordic Jazz Conference, 2010.
