Overview

Graz 1969

Swedish trombonist Eje Thelin had impressive technique and by 1969 had developed a style very much open to the innovations of the American avant-garde. This previously unreleased trio date finds Thelin sounding quite lyrical and melodic even at his freest. Bassist Palle Danielsson is practically a co-equal with the trombonist, both in solo space and his contributions to the ensembles. Percussionist John Preininger is stimulating in support during the set of originals, two Swedish folk songs ("Ack Varmeland Du Skna" is actually "Dear Old Stockholm") and an abstract version of the Beatles' "Fool on the Hill." Since Eje Thelin is a somewhat forgotten name today, particularly among American jazz listeners, the release of this CD is an important reminder of his talent.
