Calisan said...

very appreciate your time for this post of wonderful set of musicians and great rip but is there any chance to post artwork with more quality? interesting information on back cover
Thanks for all this music from the north hemisphere!

@ Calisan.

thanks for your appreciation.

As I have no scanner I use a digital camera for taking pictures from LPs/covers I have.
I virtually started to take pictures with a camera at the moment I started to post on IS!
Maybe the resolution on the camera could be better through adjusting it - but I simply do not know how to do it.
The camera was a kind of gift but without a manual.

Thanks mate, Bernt Rosengren's albums are always welcome as they are becoming difficult to get.
By the way I recently started a blog where I post little-known albums - mostly European so far, but it's not exclusive. For the time being I've only posted rips of OOP CDs I had on my hard-drive but i hope to start posting rare LP rips as soon as I get time to rip them (I'm most of the time working abroad).


boogieman said...

By the way, I'd like to post a link to your blog if you agree.

Jo/No said...

Very much appreciate this one and your other Swedish posts! Looking forward for even more to follow.. (?) ;-) Maybe you're even a Swede yourself, eller?

Tack! / Johan

I really think this album is in the "if-you´re-gonna-buy-one-album-of creative-jazz-in-your-whole-life-this-is-it" category... The freeness of these minds at this specific occasion is nothing less than mind-blowing! It´s a pity though, that you cannot hear the version of the 2nd Piano Concerto by Sergei Rachmaninov anymore (it was forbidden by his ancestors (something I, a big lover of Rachmaninov after hearing this album, can not understand and really goes against any will of Sergei´s. Shame on you! Anyway, the songs that you can still listen to are amazing! LOVE IT!
