ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gunnar K. A. Njålsson belongs to a very unusual strain of retro composers who master the beauty and depth of the music which characterised the 1960's and 1970's. Just when many thought that great names like Percy Faith, Burt Bacharach and Henry Mancini had left the world without disciples, Njålsson appears on the scene in North America, Argentina and Finland discovered and nurtured by prolific Finnish pop composers like Maki Kolehmainen of the multi-platinum Finnish techno-band "Aikakone" (Time Machine).

The single "Novela Policial" brings Canadian talent in scoring retro theme music for film and radio onto the stage and shows the diverse musical influences to which Gunnar K. A. Njalsson was exposed during his early years in North America, northern Europe and later in Argentina and Uruguay. As is usually the case with this composer and arranger, complex harmonies and a rich string section make even this simple latin melody a rare treat for modern ears. Flute and trumpet blend meticulously with an almost heavenly and somewhat liquid string section. Parts of this elegant arrangement make a tribute in musical technique to the composer's Canadian role model Percy Faith.

The "Novela Policial" theme was composed by Gunnar K. A. Njalsson while he was attending the Universidad Nacional de Quilmes in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2002 and amply reflects the atmosphere of the times.

Imagine that the musical style and sophistication of the 1960's and 1970's had never ended and that it was simply moved into the electronic realm. That is the very point of departure which which renders "Novela Policial" and other Njalsson compositions and arrangements a promising oasis of musical delight suitable for television, radio and just pure enjoyment.
