Whatever else one thinks of Swedish pianist Per Henrik Wallin, one thing must be conceded-he has assuredly developed a style of his own, which is quite evident on this album recorded by his trio nearly two decades ago. Little wonder that he has been described in the Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD as "a European original. Stylistically, Wallin is a modernist who hasn't forsaken the roots of jazz, and there are echoes in his playing of everyone from Art Tatum, Earl Hines and Bud Powell to Erroll Garner, Lennie Tristano, Thelonious Monk and Herbie Nichols. Where Is Spring was originally released as an LP, and so the CD includes an alternate version of "Winter Rhapsody" and two other previously unreleased songs, "Upright 4 PM" and "PH's Ramble," to increase the playing time to a generous 70:28. On each number, Wallin is ably accompanied by bassist Torbjörn Hultcrantz and drummer Leif Wennerström.
