Jukka Linkola, Finland

Jukka Linkola - Banana. 1976 Hi-Hat

Here's another title from the ongoing CD-R revisit program. I'm promoting this title from the main list.

Linkola, today a renowned classical pianist, was once a prominent fixture on the Finnish jazz fusion scene - most notably on Jukka Hauru's "Episode" album. Here he presents a typical-of-the-time light, tropical, and sunny fusion work with electric piano, sax, warm bass, guitar, and island percussion. Some moody interludes foreshadow his later work. A well done period piece.

It would appear his 1979 album Protofunk (on Kompass) would also be of interest to the CDRWL, but I haven't heard the album to date.

Priority: 3
