Pekka Pohjola – Harakka Bialoipokku

Finland, 1974, progressive rock / jazz-rock

This is a first listen, and I’m liking what I hear. The English translation of the song titles really helped me construct a narrative, since all the music is instrumental. I especially found the second track to be striking, what with the anthemic build ups leading to a jazzy saxophone flooding the track, like sunlight pouring across the land at sunrise.
