Daniel LantzRoine, I love the Mozart sonata. But the idea was to make everything seem long, drawn-out and tedious in the opening ballet portion, so that you really feel "it's about time" as soon as the song starts. Those with a pronounced Mozart-aversion may fast forward if they please. LOL2 weeks ago   ·  2
Daniel LantzFor anyone who is curious, this song is actually about Hera, the Queen of the Gods and protector of the holy matrimony, who complains about her bad relationship with Zeus. Zeus was notorious for fooling around with other women. At this point in the legend, she tries to overthrow Zeus with the help of the other Gods and break free from their terrible marriage.2 weeks ago   ·  1

Jan AxaeusEndless hours of listening to riff-based jazzfunk from the late sixties/early seventies, I cant help but absorbing the hole concept of Beat Function. The sound bear influences of the eras best tracks from record-companies like Blue Note and CTI. It's hard to pick out a track as the best one, but my recent favorite is "I am the Summer". The alternate syncopation of the horn-section and mr Öijens effortless guitar-solo, is music excelling. When the key changes, the groove goes wild and I cant stop my feet from moving to the enticing rhythms and the somewhat "dirty" sounds of the saxophone. Summer is coming!2 weeks ago   ·  1
Ricardo Santanalove "City Lights" from Moon Town. It reminds me of a track from one of my favorite movies. It is a great song to hear on the headphones on an early morning jog watching the sun come up across the river.2 weeks ago   ·  1
Björn GranqvistNot an easy question to answer, but I have to say the song "Moon Town"! In this song, there is those genuine feelings from the seventies with influenses from Donald Byrd (for example the record Street Lady) as well as from themes from TV crimes from the seventies and many other bands/artist. I really like the melody with the talk box sound, the synthesizer sound, the brass arrangement and so on. Very well composed with a lot of variations, great played by everyone in the band and an intensity that would make any jazz club cooking! The ending with the minor(major7) chord (I think it is) like in the James Bond theme suites the song so well.2 weeks ago   ·  1
Anton Falk"Sunkissed" from Voodooland. The Bass line starting with the snappy drums, catching your attention, percussions joining in on an off beat accent, switches to straight for only a couple of bars and then back to stay on the off beat, subtle but clean putting you straight into that killer groove! Crisp funky sound as the whole album, great flute playing, killer groove and four epic solos makes it my favourite beat funktion track!2 weeks ago   ·  2
Łukasz Baja"Are We Done?" from Live At Fasching. The keyboard intro sets the pace and groove so nicely, it's like listening to musical rain drops. The intro fades and that sublime saxophone comes into interplay with the horn. Beautiful song that makes one's heart ache with longing.3 weeks ago   ·  1
