"While Oslo, Norway is by no means the first place you might think of when it comes to soul, it surprisingly had it’s heyday of great soul music. Here, the NRK Sessions represents a compilation of soul, afro-jazz, and Latin influenced music from this Nordic country ... Starting off this dance party is The Band No Name with a version of Led Zeppelin’s "Whole Lotta Love." A funky goodtime with horns and conga’s, they turn this guitar heavy blues song into a jazzy funkathon with some Latin soul that makes for a fun listen. Other standout tracks include The Band No Name’s versions of Buddy Miles’ Them Changes and James Brown’s Hot Pants ... Check out Geir Wentzels Orkester with Magni Wentzel covering Ashford and Simpson’s "California Soul," and feel the ice melt from your perception of what this nordic country has to offer in terms of music."
