From the vaults!

In April 1975, a year and a half before Opus 3 Records was founded, we had the pleasure of making a live recording of Kustbandet. It was a really swinging event and as the well known character from the era Fats Waller put it….”The joint was jumpin”.

When you think that it is almost 40 years since this recording was made it is very gratifying that we were able to capture the fantastic energy, musicianship and enthusiasm for the essential elements of jazz from this era, making it easy to forgive any imperfections of balance between the different instruments due to a less than perfect environment.
