Magnus Carlson

Magnus Carlson is the former vocalist with the Swedish pop group the Weeping Willows. He later signed a solo deal with Blue Note Records to become Sweden's premier jazz artist. Next he recorded a soul album for Marshall Chess's Swedish Tri-Sound label. A busy boy then, I think you'll agree.

By way of coincidence, Acid Jazz records label boss Mr E Piller, played a track from the aforementioned Tri-sound recording (a label in which he is also involved) on a blog-cast, which caused such a clamour of interest that he decided to release it on the Acid Jazz label in the UK.

The song in question was 'From Now On', a white soul, Style Council-esque, floor- filler and stand-out track from the album. Released on seven inch vinyl with a b-side that should make any sixties music enthusiast smile with approval, a groovy reworking of the Donavan/Jeff Beck collaborative classic 'Barabajagal'.   
The limited edition 7” single comes in a cool looking customised Acid Jazz/Tri-Sound house bag and is available from the 5th of September.

  1. Strange, the track you mention 'From now on' does not appear on my copy of the Tri sound album 'Echoes'. Great album though, guess I'll have to buy the track as a single or is it available as a download?
