Montevideo for SweDisc Japan from 1978.
Hans Olsson - Keyboards/Salomon Helperin-Horns/Ulf Wakenius-Guitar/Jan Forslund-Saxes/Mikael Anderson-Drums,Percussion/Thomas Fantokurtos-Bass.
A real obscurity and a first in the blogosphere.Keeing with the Swedish theme a nice bit of Scandinavian fusion with a latin twist via Japan.
Try googling this and see what you get-nada!
The bass player's been listening to Pastorius big time while the rest of the band seem to be in Weather Report territory with a helping of Spanish guitar plus some candomble/latin elements.
Check out the massive bass driven percussion and chants of "El Travajo" and the samba sounds of "Light Hour".
If anyone can shed any more light on this session drop a comment in the box.
