Aarflot. Andreas - Det Rivna Pianot (1978)
The one and only album from this Swedish musician.
Andreas Aarflot did the keyboards on this album.
He had help from seven other musicians who provided guitars, bass, drums, trumpet, flute, trombone, saxophone and vocals.
From what I have learned, this Swedish keyboardist is a full time TV and movie soundtrack composer. His only album and step into the limelight was this album. Besides of that, he is beavering away in the background, composing music others plays.
The music on this album is laid back fusion with a lot of cinema music, jazz, pop and some prog rock incorporated into the fusion.
The keyboards are good and ditto for the female vocals. It is my understanding that all the musicians here are professional studio musicians who knows what they are doing.
Both the songs with the good vocals from Britt Nilsson and the more jazzy bits are pretty decent. The cinema music is very proggy and intricate.
This album is pretty decent. Me thinks Andreas Aarflot should have released more albums like this as he was on to something on this album. Sadly, he has not. That is a shame.
