On the first record from Swedish jazz/folk/psych improvisers the music is quite normal. There's a melancholy, Scandinavian feel in most of the tunes that I find very attractive. The instrumentation is changing - piano, cello, trumpet, sax, violin, marimba, drums, electric bass .... but no guitar A&F line-up: Bengt Berger, Torsten Eckerman, Ove Karlsson, Roland Keijser, Kjell Westling
After the 2nd album Bengt Berger & Kjell Westling left (and was later replaced by Tord Bengtsson & Bosse Skoglund). It's more experimental on songs like "Fylke Airport" - great cello/violin workout & "Den tredje gång jag såg dig" - begins like World Music and ends in Free jazz. Only two songs are in the same, melancholy folk/jazz style as the first album - "Finsk sorgmarsch"(one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever recorded) & "Två grekiska låtar". "Tango Gabardin" with two noodling organs reminds me of Pere Ubu's "Arabia" from The Art of Walking.
Great LPs!Connections with Trad Gras Och Stenar. Of course included in the NWW list.
