This 1971 album by Swedish jazz trumpeter Bengt-Arne Wallin, active at the forefront since the 1950s, features a number of Swedish jazz musicians, including Monica Zetterland, Sven Berger, and Rune Gustafsson. Produced for a Swedith Broadcasting Corporation television program as part of the Montreux Festival in 1971, the album features a wide range of jazz styles, from psychedelic big band jazz to samba jazz and samba jazz. This is a pop total concept album with a very enjoyable musical style, ranging from psychedelic big band jazz to samba jazz, mood music with Zetterland's impressive vocals, and children's music, which seems to have been influenced by The Beatles, and is a Swedish version of Magical Mystery Tour. Recommended.
