RARITY # 58

HACKE BJÖRKSTEN & ÅKE PERSSON  QUINTET
METRONOME MEP 353 (EP)   - Sweden, 1956



For some time now, Onxidlib has been the main purveyor of rare EP in the Rarity Series.  He still has a few surprises for us.  Here is his latest contribution, that will rejoice fans of Scandinavian jazz: a fairly rare EP by the HACKE BJÖRKSTEN / ÅKE PERSSON QUINTET, recorded in 1956.






I assume these tracks have been re-issued on LP and/or CD , I still have to check the discographies. 


Personel:
Gunnar "Hacke" Björksten, tenor saxophone
Åke Persson, trombone
Jan Johansson, piano
Bengt Carlsson, bass
Svante Thuresson, drums

Tracks
A1. Song Of The Volga Boatmen 2:36
A2. Don’t Get Around Much Anymore 3:54
B1. Tubeless Tires 3:23
B2. Number Six 2:33


Recorded March 8 + 9, 1956 at Metronome Studio, Stockholm.
