Thank you, Andy for the video-link. Already earlier this year I was alerted through Mats Gustafsson's website about the reunion of this group. Only the bassist didn't make the date. So Elsa Bergman (of a.o. Anna Höberg Attack) took the seat.

Been hoping to come across an album featuring Phil's trumpet work, from 1969 too, wow. Many Thanks.
