CD (Item 487503) Sonet/Universal (Sweden), Late 70s/Early 80s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.80 5

A huge amount of work from funky flute man Bjorn Jason Lindh – material recorded after his initial early 70s fame, and a package that includes 6 albums that hardly got any circulation in the US at the time! The groove here is partially the funky fusion that you'd know from Bjorn's few American releases – but it also moves into more atmospheric styles at times too – very open and spacious at points, and more fusion-driven at others. The albums run from the late 70s through the mid 80s – and there's a definite instrumentation shift along the way – a bit less jazz, some more electronics at points – yet still always handled with the kind of care and sensitivity for sound that made Lindh's early material great. The package features the albums Bike Voyage II (1978), Musik (1981), Vata Vingar (1980), Varlden Vander (1985), Atlantis (1983), and Svensk Rapsodi (1986) – and the package includes 55 tracks in all.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
