The 70s are a bottomless pit of musical gemms, as shows this spectacular and unexpected compilation made in Japan on the roots of Scandinavian soul jazzfunk and boogie. The land of Abba and its neighbours was also home of one the finest musicians in jazz, soul, a background that for sure explains the quality of today's music from this scene.

I chose a track by former Abba guitarist Lasse Wellander who delivers a solid jazzfunk piece from 1976, miles away from his disco imprints.

Extract: Lasse Wellander - hotel 167 (1976)
