Default Pekka Pohjola - Harakka Bialoipokku

The “story of a magpie who wonders (or wanders) the world”. I hope this is on-topic as it's like a jazz chamber rock prog folk fusion explosion
Spoiler for Wiki bio:
Jussi Pekka Pohjola (13 January 1952 – 27 November 2008) was a Finnish multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer. Best known as a bass player, Pohjola was also a classically trained pianist and violinist.
Pohjola rose to fame as the bass player of the Finnish progressive rock band Wigwam, but he soon departed on a solo career, initially releasing Frank Zappa–influenced progressive rock albums. As his career progressed Pohjola developed a more novel musical style that could best be described as fusion jazz. In addition to Wigwam and his solo albums, Pohjola played with the band Made in Sweden, The Group and the bands of Jukka Tolonen and Mike Oldfield..."

This has to be the only Miles song, at least that I've heard, that's so bad it's good



I didn't realize Bob Dorough, who sang this song, is the guy who wrote most of School House Rock and performed many of the songs.

This is why I effing love jazz.

If I heard this lady practising across the street I definitely wouldn't be able to connect with her melody or downbeat or tempo or key. It would just be random sounds. Similarly, if I only heard the band playing without her I'd probably just think it's a pleasant background groove.

However hearing both together somehow give off a friggin' awesome sound, and it all clicks into place in some weird stellar combustion. It's like you can't have one without the other.

I wonder if it's their own composition or a cover of a jazz standard? (This short snippet was all she posted on her insta yesterday). Does anyone recognize it...?
