A long silence it has been, but now I have something new, something different this time.

With a permission from the band, I'm posting a live gig from the great Finnish free jazz group, Taco Bells, augmented with the fantastic Swedish reedsman, Martin Küchen. It was recorded at the Club Praesens in Jyväskylä, and it was a part of their Finnish tour.

Here's the basic info:

  1. I've kept your great site in my bookmarks and checked in from time to time, so it's nice to see you back. Live Finnish free jazz is pretty much unobtainable to me, so I look forward to hearing this.

  2. To anyone who is interested finnish free jazz, check out Black Motor in You Tube.

  3. welcome back and thanks for the new post!

  4. Hey!
    thanks a lot for that one.

  5. Thanks a plenty! I saw them live on Wednesday (Sept. 21, 2011) at Kuudes Linja, Helsinki – unfortunately I arrived late and heard only a part of their gig, but I was very impressed indeed.
