The "Old Campaigner" from Sweden at the organ: Still wild, perhaps a little bit less wild than on his CD Jazz 'n Soul from 1996. "Wild" Pierre Swärd - you may think of Wild Bill Davis because of Pierre's swinging chorus like style - again proves that he can fill his audience with enthusiasm. On this live recording, Pierre and his trio play some standards, among them the "Mighty Burner" written by the great Charles Earland. Also very impressive is Pierre's interpretation of "Spinning Wheel".
