Up Close – Extra Takes

Berger Knutsson Spering

This digital-only album contains an alternate take of Paul Motians “It should have…” plus some very good music that did not make it to the cd for one reason or another; Ellington’s ballad “In a Sentimental Mood” , a south indian piece and two originals.

Wonderful extra material and alternate takes from the Up Close session.


  1. In A Sentimental Mood (6:56)
  2. Tarangini (4:41)
  3. Messiaen (10:16)
  4. It Should Have Happened A Long Time Ago (8:37)
  5. Peace For Don (4:29)
