Review by apps79
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars An accomplished keyboardist,Finnish Jukka Gustavson was born in 1951 in Sipoo and was a founding member of Progressive/Jazz-Rock band Wigwam,with whom he recorded four studio and a live album from 1969 to 1974.By mid-70's Gustavson decided to leave the band and start a personal career.His solo debut with the long title ''...jaloa ylpeytt' ylet'n... ylev'' n'yryytt' nousen'' was quite ambitious with Gustavson collaborating with an orchestra and no less than 23 musicians,among them some famous names of the Finnish jazz and rock scene like Juhani Aaltonen and Juha Bj'rninen.This was released in 1978 on Love Records.

This is a modern Neo-Classical/Jazz symphony,split into 13 parts,creating a solid long piece with no actual empty holes.It starts off as a dissonant Classical piece with Gustavson's organ on the front,before transforming into a Symphonic/Jazz Rock opus with great work on flutes,horns and saxes,excellent guitar parts and Gustavson's jazzy piano performance.By the middle the album has already offered tons of light and accurate interplays,when Gustavson decides to make an almost KING CRIMSON-esque complex explosion.Unfortunately this great piece will lose much of what it really deserves,when entering the last part and the musicianship gets very funky and somewhat out of place.Soon though Juha Bjorninen will appear with an almost FOCUS jazzy soloing of high quality,Gustavson starts to dominate again with strong organ work and the wind section is back on fire for the nice ending,which features plenty of great breaks.

This modern symphony is actually a very good introduction to any fan of music to the progressive rock ideology.Additionally it comes as a great example of Jukka Gustavson's endless talent and strong composing skills,despite the few misplaced minutes.Warmly recommended...3.5 stars.
