70s jazz left us with some beautiful melodies and harmonies, but compared to previous decades they were few and far between.
Jazz was busy with so many other things in the 70s.
On this album four of Sweden’s top shelf players explore seven of these scarce 70s compositions by Chick Corea, Bill Evans, and other jazz greats.
All four started their life-long jazz journey as kids in the 70s.
This album’s instrumentation probably is a first-time-ever in jazz: guitar, double bass, drums, and a cello as soloist and main melodic carrier.
The album was recorded and mixed in 2018 at Carpenter Road Studios in Piteå by Tomas Johannesson, and mastered at Nilento Studio by Lars Nilsson. It is released on the label Nilento Records.
