Between 1961 and 1965 Eje Thelin formed his first own group with which he toured across Europe. In 1964 he performed in Copenhagen with George Russell; from the late 60s to the mid-70s he played with Joachim Kühn and John Surman and turned to Free Jazz. This quintet is famous for the cooperation with Belgian Joel Vandrooogenbroeck, who had played with big names such as Barney Wilen and Zoot Sims. In 1968 Vandroogenbroeck formed the experimental rockband Brainticket.
This 1963 session features the same line-up as their live recording from the German Jazz Festival 1964 (BE Jazz 6066 LP & CD). We are happy to see this album re-issued, especially in this wonderful quality, remastered from the original tapes.
Listen to this record like never before!
