'THE COMPLETE JAZZ AT THE POLYTECHNICUM RECORDINGS 1967-1968' - A Svart Mondo release, limited to 500 copies. By the early 1960s, jazz in its mainstream form had become the standard dance music for the student parties in high schools and several student union clubrooms in Helsinki. The Polytech union even organized matinée dances for high school students on Sundays. The change in the musical preference of young people's dance music occurred with the arrival of British rock in the mid-sixties and this, of course, coincided with another cultural and musical development. As the new campus for the school was built in Otaniemi, Espoo in 1955-1966 and its operations gradually moved there, the modern style "Dipoli" building became the crowning edifice on the campus. It was to be the new home for the Polytech student union. When this controversial building was opened in 1966, it was meant to introduce a new vision of the future and constituted an embodiment of the modernist spirit of those times in the late 1960s. This reissue of the complete jazz at the Polytechnicum recordings, done in 1967-68, also provides us with a glimpse of the modern directions of those days, not only in jazz music, but also in performance art. It is easy to hear that the main aesthetic in these performances was to break conventions and find new avenues for individual expression. The publisher of these recordings was the Jazz Society of the Tech Students, which was formed a little before these recordings. The name of the society was a take-off from Norman Granz' Jazz At The Philharmonic and it became Jazz At The Polytechnicum. Both are, of course, abbreviated as J.A.T.P., which became formulated in musicians' mouths into "Jappa". This Svart Records reissue consists of four EPs in chronological order. The first three feature three jazz groups of the leading young players with their ages ranging from 21 to 30. The fourth one documents an avant-garde art "happening" held in Dipoli on March 20th-24th 1968 called 'Posotusta, Pimputusta, Pompotusta', which could freely be translated as 'Huff 'n' Puff 'n' Plonk'.

Also available: JAPPA (CD).
