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.
