Pohjola. Pekka - Pihkasilmä Kaarnakorva (1972)

The debut album from this artist from Finland.

Pekka Pohjola did the organ, bass, piano and violin on this album.

He got help from guest musicians providing drums, organ, piano, saxophone, flute and clarinet.

Pekka Pohjola started out as the bassist in the excellent Finnish band Wigwam before striking out on himself with around ten solo albums before he sadly passed away in 2008.

I got all his albums and will review them in this blog.

This album takes us through a landscape with some Finnish folk rock, fusion, jazz and some avant-garde bass noodling.

There is a good balance of bass, clarinet, piano and keyboards here.

The quality is somewhere between decent and good. More decent than good, though. The musicians tries their best on some pieces of music which is not particular great.

It is well worth checking out this album if 1970s Scandinavian prog is your thing and you want to check out this artist from Finland.
