Tasavallan Presidentti: Lambertland (Love Records, Sweden).

Stuart Nicholson's excellent book "Jazz Rock: A History", has only a few faults, one of which is its too abbrieviated history and analysis of the European jazz rock scene. Some clues to what has been omitted, will be found from listening to this record. Tasavallan Presidentti are one of those seemingly obscure bands who contributed to jazz rock's development. Even so, they were briefly popular in the UK because of this album, Lambertland.

Sonet distributed the vinyl version in the UK around 1973, with a sticker on the cover stating "....Tasavallan Presidentti are a tidied up Traffic...". As selling aid it told the potential buyer more about the band's earlier albums and much less about the music here. With "Lambertland" TP had developed well beyond the jazz-tempered, psychedelic rock of Traffic, and produced this minor classic of fusion. This is jazz fusion that evolved in the typical European way: rock musicians taking on board jazz influences (cf. much of American jazz rock was about jazz musicians taking on board rock rhythms and electrification).

Let's examine one of my all time favourite jazz rock tunes, as a an example of this album's music.

'The Bargain' is a rock tune that within a few bars has become jazz. Fade up an urgent drum shuffle, quickly sax and wah wah guitar overlay the drums, provided by Jukka Tolonen and Pekka Pöyry respectively - both nowadays known as solo musicians have reputations equal to Jan Akkermann, at least amongst those who know their albums. Then a beautiful interplay of guitar with sax, giving a call and response with the vocalist.

The first reviewer is right - this IS a classic. I first discovered TP after buyibng the guitarist, Jukka Tolonen's first solo album ('Tolonen' - another classic). From there it was straight to 'Lambertland'. Every track is a winner. Beautifully crafted and played and, what's more, it still stands the test of time today. If you can find yourself a copy - buy it!!

I first found this in the mid 1970s in a record shop in Skelmersdale amongst the Genesis and Yes albums and was drawn in both by the cover and the knock-down price. It has become one of my favourite albums because, like all really enduring records, it creates an atmosphere that does not rely on a particular track or a specific musician. The production gives the music a strange trebly quality and the lyrics are just odd, but there is a consistency of mood and texture that defines its own small universe and holds you there for 30 minutes or so. In this respect it is like a number of releases from that period - Santana's Caravanserai, Eno's Another Green World - that you have to listen to in their entirety at one sitting to fully appreciate their appeal.

I explored the other recordings by the group from the same era and they are pretty rubbish, especially Milky Way Moses, so get this and nothing else. Jukka Tolonen released a few solo albums which showed what an accomplished guitarist he is but they seem pale and derivative in comparison to Lambert Land. Formally, it may be jazz rock; in reality it is something unique and wonderful.
