Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Gothenburg avant garde jazz outfit Pow Wow defies categorization. The group's influences dance from Swedish folklore to Native American, from lyric ballads to standards, from earworms to freeform treks through jazz history. And small wonder, as some members have been exploring the avant garde idiom together since 1975. The crew brings their individually formidable talents together again to "wop 'n wow" listeners with their collective power.
