The Reason Why Vol. 1 Goran Kajfeš

June 4, 2013


The Reason Why Vol. 1 by Swedish trumpeter Goran Kajfes´Subtropic Arkestra seemed worth investigating, if only for the Sun Ra reference. Cosmic anarchy indeed rules as 10 Swedish jazzers reinterpret Cluster, Soft Machine, Turkish psych titan Edip Akbayram and others I don´t know; jazz slipped a pill to send it flying into new dimensions, also invoking Van Der Graaf, big bands and funky Latin.
