3 stars If I was to make separate rating for each side of this vinyl , the first very classicaly oriented tracks would get 2* and the second much more jazzy-rock-fusion-classical would get 4*. The first track is marred by a too long boring drum-bass solo in the modern classical style (Faure-Boulez) and the music is rather direction-less. The real treat is the last two tracks (merged into one on CD) that are much more energetic and show that Pohjola was one of the leading bassist (he was in the Wigwam/Tasallavan Presidentii crowd) of Scandinavia and his style is very much as Jefferson Airplane's Jack Casady. The long improvisation pieces is simply riveting to your seat and when hearing the piano and the organ making superb interplay , one could almost say that this alone is worth the price of admission , but this is not indispensible to your collection. Hence the 3 star rating.
