Eero Koivistoinen "X-Ray"
Ha publicado el estupendo saxofonista finlandés Eero Koivistoinen un nuevo disco, "X-Ray", que por lo visto va en la onda funk-jazz de "Wahoo!", tremendo trabajo de 1973.
Entre los colaboradores está Jim Pembroke, mítico (¿?) cantante del grupo finlandés Wigwam.
No es todo original pq comenta que utiliza fragmentos de composiciones anteriores (sincero es). Este es el comentario de su página:
Eero Koivistoinen has returned again to his funk/jazz roots with his new album X-Ray. The 1973 album WAHOO! by Eero Koivistoinen Music Society was rereleased in 2000 and it attained notable success with its UK distributor Whatmusic. With X-Ray, Eero Koivistoinen introduces Music Society updated to 2006.
X-Ray gets its inspiration from the sources of funk and jazz with strong connections to the modern day. Most ompositions are new, but a couple of older tunes are also incorporated with new arrangements. Some songs on X-Ray have been moulded from samples of Eero's older albums. The new
Music Society includes also vocals and rap, performed by Bina Nkwazi, Charles Salter, Hannu Leidén and Redrama. Jim Pembroke makes a contribution with his lyrics.
The recordings started with a six-man core group, but on the final product there are twelve musicians, four singers and a rap artist. X-Ray shows the skills of Koivistoinen as a musician, composer and arranger. The recordings were completed at Seawolf Studios with all the newest technology at hand.
The ensemble will be performing mainly with the six-man core group, but rap/vocal guests will be joining them occasionally.
