Wonderful music from three scandinavians and one german. Conny Sjökvist of 'Mount Everest' fame and the ever astounding Buschi Niebergall. The other two musicians were knew to me but especially Bengt Ernryd plays an excellent trumpet. Every piece a gem.
I've re-upped this treasured LP on re-listening to it after a concert of Mats Gustafsson and Agustí Fernández last Friday.
Mats told me that Swedish Azz is going to release a LP with Bengt Ernryd and Gilbert Holmström (>Mount Everest) this winter - this exciting prospect brought me back to the music posted here in December 2010....
