A classic album from legendary Finnish sax player Eero Koivistoinen. For Children was a step to the new decade. Jazz funk had landed in Finland and Eero's new band Music Society employed Jukka Tolonen for guitar. It's relaxed yet funky rimshot-laden rhythm backs Eero's sax solo and make the track a unique jazz dance masterpiece very much in the vein of the best MPS-releases. The track is accompanied with Roots & Boots, a short epilogue that reworks the beautiful main theme.

Bonus:

  2. conocí su música en el programa El Jazz, Su Historia y Sus Intérpretes, que hacía Horacio Hernández (padre) en CMBF en la 2da mitad de los años 70. eran LPs que Paquito D´Rivera había traido del viaje de Irakere a Europa, y cosas que llegaban por otras vías y el gran Horacio las radiaba. Muy bueno.
