Sansara Music Band for Sonet Sweden from 1977.

Bernt Rosengren , Bronislav Suchanek , Fredrik Norén , Jojje Wadenius , Lars Färnlöf , Staffan Abeleen , Willy Ekwe.

Excellent set of Swedish jazz recorded at Fasching Jazz Club in Stockholm featuring three extended live interpretations of the wonderful compositions of Lars Farnlof.
"Birthcry" and "Cameleont" first saw life as part of Farnlof's rare 1969 "Chameleon" soundtrack and the former was also featured on the 1976 "Sansara Music Band Plays The Music Of Lars Farnlof" on which "Boutique Sandham" also appeared.
All Killer No Filler.

I have put a new RShare link in the comments as there appears to be a problem with Mediafire.

Joe Henderson for Fontana Japan from 1971.
Joe Henderson - tenor saxophone Terumasa Hino - trumpet Kousuke Mine - alto and soprano saxophones Masabumi Kikuchi - piano, electric piano Yoshio Suzuki - bass Hiroshi Murakami & Yoshiyuki Nakamura - drums

Recorded at the Tokyo Toshi Center Hall, Tokyo, Japan, on August 5, 1971, this live set features Henderson with an incredible line up of Japanese young lions.The session took place the day after Henderson's appearance at the Junk Club, Tokyo, for the recording of 'Joe Henderson In Japan' on the Milestone label and is something of a different beast.
"Sunrise In Tokyo" kicks us off with a terrific head and solos from the three major protagonists while "So What" is taken at a rapid tempo and again showcases the big three from the lp title."Get Magic Again" is a more abstract piece moving into New Thing territory with great piano from Kikuchi who penned the title.
