Sometimes I’m rewarded with small gifts from life itself. It can happen as I pass an open door, a car or just turn the radio on, and then happiness suddenly appears. A gift that comes in the shape of arranged tones, feelings and lyrics. As the soundwaves hit the ear canals, pure happiness is produced together with enjoyment and meditation.

This happened to me when I by coincidence came in contact with the music of Yazzman. The guy also has a wonderful sense of humour.

He writes about himself:
“I have played piano since high school, I played electric organ before that. Got hooked on jazz in junior high school, and with the Hammond organ at folk school. Founder of Emergency, Big Organ Community and New Standards Orchestra.”

I Have a Dream

“I made this song and recorded it together with Pontus Torstensson and Ola Hedman in Arvika 2002. The sound engineer is Martin Berggren. It’s mainly because of him that it sounds so good”

Martin Berggren’s home page



“This song was recorded together with the same people as the other one, but it is Lars Danielsson who has written Hymn”

Good music works and shapes the soul, and whirls around like laughing bubbles in the blood stream.

And the music of Yazzman is whirling around inside of me right now.

I’m sitting down with my headphones on, but I feel that I just want to get up and drift away doing some unknown dance! I want to be Travolta, but can only see myself as Uma Thurman???!!!…strange! I realize that the supercool Malmö band Salma Ghandi (just look at the name!) would fit in any Tarantino movie.

I’m sorry to say that I seldom listen to instrumental music, but when this psychedelic jazz-rock goes on and on, I just feel pure joy!
As a hot tip I can tell you that right now, Salma Ghandi is in the studio, producing a full length album. Exactly how they will realease it, is, according to the bass player Alex, not yet decided….but…how about releasing it as a free download!?

For updates about this, check out Salma Ghandi on Myspace.
