WALLGREN - ERNRYD - NIEBERGALL - SJÖKVIST "BALLADE AN DER RUHR" (DRAGON DRLP 24, 1979)




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.

Update:
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....




Bengt Ernryd, trumpet, fluegelhorn
Jan Wallgren, piano
Johannes B. Niebergall, double bass
Conny Sjökvist, drums


1. Kugel (Niebergall) 10:07
2. Ballade An Der Ruhr (Ernryd) 08:21
3. Love Song And Dances No.2 (Wallgren) 11:18
4. From The Diary Of A Travelling Salesman (Wallgren) 07:07


Recorded at Tonstudio Burghardt & Sohn,  Schwerte,  Germany on November 27 & 28, 1979.

The new link appears to be for the recent reup link to "Bura-Bura pt 1" instead of this very attractive Dragon LP Ballade An Der Ruhr.
