Lew Tabackin/Toshiko Akioshi Big Band.

All their albums are top jazz band ...

This one is one of the best known...

I concur ...

It is not so much unknown that an album who deserve to be more well known ...But i dont think it is well known... For me well known is common name in jazz ...Miles Davis , Chet baker, etc Brad Meldhau ... Etc

Who knows Jan Johansson piano trio albums or solo one , one of the most creative in swedish jazz history ?

Who said that there is no great jazz musician in Sweden ? ūüėĀ not me...

All his albums deserved to be known out of Sweden ...

Jazz for me became after the war a universal musical expression worldwide...As classical  became ...

It is why half of my jazz listening is out of North America  where jazz is born ...

 

 

Possibly more "difficult to find" than "unknown," but "Long Yellow Road" by the Lew Tabackin/Toshiko Akioshi Big Band.

Lew Tabackin has also released excellent recordings as a leader. Not only does he excel on sax but he has one of the most distinctive styles on flute in Jazz.
