Kenneth Knudsen's Anima (1979) in a new lossless rip



This Danish keyboardist was a member of Coronarias Dans and Entrance and the inimitable Secret Oyster...  He struck out on his own with this keyboard album in 1979.  As one can expect it's full of progressive ideas and highly interesting, lacking the total energy of a group like Entrance, but worth hearing without a doubt.  There is more of the Coronarias classical music influence here than fusion.

From my wonderfully generous friend:

Kenneth Knudsen is a Danish Jazz keyboardist and composer. Studied architecture in Royal Danish Academy of Arts. He participated in over one hundred albums with such ''stars'' as Arild Andersen, Svend Asmussen, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, Karsten Vogel, Palle Mikkelborg, Miles (Aura) Davis and Indian Violinisten L. Subramaniam and groups like Secret Oyster, Coronarias Dans, Anima, Entrance, Bombay Hotel and Heart To Heart Trio.

Secret Oyster in particular like most of you out there has a special place in my heart.  Thankfully their output has been rereleased to CD.  Incidentally one underestimated member of that group who made some delightfully original music on his own is Karsten Vogel.  Check out some of his earlier records if you want to explore some new material.
