info 

On this album, the Swedish folk music band Oddjob turns to the past in order to see the future. Here are seven new tracks, all inspired by the Caprice Records classic ‘Lockrop och Vallatar’ (CAP 21483), which features a horn tune, goat callings, and herding tunes. This was the starting point for the famous folk / jazz band Oddjob. The musicians (Peter Forss – acoustic bass; Per Johansson – sax, bass clarinet, alto flute; Goran Kajfes – trumpet and modular synthesizer; Daniel Karlsson – piano and Crumar organ; Janne Robertson – drums) explore the archival music from a jazz perspective and make history into contemporary music. While recording, the band chose one song at a time to collectively improvise over until something emerged that felt ready to be recorded. The result is an inventive jazz album.
