We returned to the sounds of the time, but with a keen eye for today’s technology: Hammond Organ C3, Piano, Mellotron, Moog, Eminent, Wurlitzer, Electric Bass, Double Bass, Electric Guitar, Classical and Acoustic 12 string, Drums, percussion Ottambo, Glockenspiel and the magical violin of the great David Cross. All this for a disc that sees within it the musical genres that belong to me most, that have marked my life as a musician for over 50 years and that will continue to mark it until I have the strength to get on a stage. On the disc you will find a mixture of classical, lyrical, rock and prog music with special and emotional adaptations and arrangements resulting from my great passion and my love for music».

About Ulf Backstrøm (7231 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
