The Soloists part #1

No westcoast album is complete without a set of extraordinary solos. We were lucky enough to be able to utilize some of the best talent (and best kept secrets) in this part of the world.

Petri Kivimäki: tenor sax
On the song "Looney Gunman" we had a very vague notion about including some sort of schizophrenic outburst somewhere in the song. Petri, being a professional saxophone player from Finland, made sense of our ramblings and delivered a totally deranged tenor sax solo which was perfect for the song!

Göran Turborn: guitar
Göran was instrumental (no pun intended) in shaping the sound of a song called "Lost in a Mindgame". This is probably the most Steely Dan-esque of all our songs having Göran fusing together styles of famous Steely Dan guitar soloists with his own unique jazzy tone into an absolutely brilliant solo!
