John Sund & The Danish Radio Big Band
This was a co-operation between The Danish Radio Big Band and John Sund, and it was also to become his first release as a solo artist. John wrote and arranged all the music in this huge work and he’s also featured as a soloist on the entire album.
This album was originally released on Olufsen Records and has now been reissued and remastered on Gateway Music and is only available as a download format.
“His guitar is grand in scope and orchestral in texture. The most intriguing movement on the record comes during “Consensus” which makes use of phasing clarinets and muted brass over a reggae-derived rhythm pattern. This is definitely the winner in the batch of Olufsen’s.”
