The Mods--Jigsaw puzzle

My absolute favourite jigsaw puzzle when I was a child.

Trio Lasse Mårtensson EP Finland

My guess is that this little finnish gem is from around 1960, very intresting piece mostly because Christian Schwindt plays the drums.

Eje Thelin Concert poster Gyllene Cirkeln 1964

Does anyone remember this record catalog ? came out a couple of times each year and when looking back I surely bought wrong records from them as it includes some major rarities which sells for large sums today......................

My sister

I just remember that even my sister has been on a cover to a book, she is down to the right,in front of the guy playing bongos, around 1977?

Al Tanner quintet

I have decided after having this for the third time to keep it, such a delicate LP with many great tunes.
On touche records late 60´s San Fransisco.


Here I am in the mid 60´s, top drawing by my father.

Pat Granar trio EP

On danish label Jacks beat record,possibly around 1967, not jazz,more like Bob Azzam sound.
An italian trio touring Europe got to make an ep in Denmark, must be truly rare.

Golden Circle jazz club

A totally new discovery for me,this screenposter made for Gyllene cirkeln in the early 60´s is one of few I have not seen before.

Carsten Meinert Quartet To you LP 1968

The first time I heard this danish LP ,about ten years ago it was like a revelation for me,it is still one of the best jazz records from Europe and I cherish this one a lot.
Musically it reminds me a lot of Coltrane and P.Sanders however it is so powerful that it just stands well alone as a landmark in Danish jazz.
For the collector I can reveil that there are 2 different pressing, first Mr.Meinert pressed it on his own label M.S. records and the label is red, more solid vinyl, second pressing possibly the same year is on blue MS/ spectator label. The first red label is almost impossible to find and he did not press many on that one.
Need I tell you that the sleeve is amazing?, it does not really look like a jazz lp more like an early progressive lp.

Solar Plexus - Samba

When seeing this clip I got a flashback from early 70´s that I saw it on swedish television at that time.

Loosdrecht Jazz Concours 1964

Another fine example that Holland produced the finest jazz from Europe in the 60´s besides Sweden and England.
One of my finds at the Record fair in Utrecht November 2010.
