"A suite composed by Jerry, and recorded in concert at Röhsska museet in Göteborg, 2010. Jerry plays his beloved Gibson in a masterly way, in tight interaction with his quartet. Different and varied themes wanders around in the dark and shadowy rooms in the very heart of chamber jazz. The mysteries of the West Coast Jazz are embroidered together, both emotionally and historically, between Göteborg and the American West Coast in a most natural way, in where the personal and imprint both runs and feels totally at home, spinning a red thread of dreams. It is also not to be considered as a coincidence that the so called psychedelic revolution had its origins and roots in the Californian 1960´s cultural heritage. Traces of this revolution keeps on revolving in Jerry´s compositions as well. Larry Coryell, Gabor Szabo, Jerry Garcia, Jerry Hahn; fragmentary remembrances of sounds from previous originator flashes by in our collective memories at the speed of lightning; but Jerry Johansson has both his feet firmly planted on the lawn and safely and firmly pushes the jazz frontiers still forward. The history of jazz meets newly composed jazz history." (label info)
