“Sounding like the sophisticated Scandinavian elder brother of 3 Days Of The Condor or Roy Budd’s Diamonds, this previously-unreleased soundtrack is a slab of atmospheric funky jazz served Norwegian style!”Moving Music present the next instalment in vintage Norwegian Soundtrack music. The youth movie “Operasjon Cobra” from 1978 is about a group of local terrorists trying to assassinate the US foreign minister on his visit Norway. The plans go wrong however as the plot is sabotaged by a group of youngsters living in SnarÃ¸ya on the outskirts of Oslo.
The variety of Pete Knutsen’s music is funky jazz with the occasional dramatic mood and hint of disco, to coincide with the popular music of the times. Soundtrack feature and all-star cast of top Norwegian session players from the late seventies: Knut RiisnÃ¦s, Henry Lysiak, Thor Andreassen and Terje Methi. Played with strong array of musicianship and impressive use of instrumentation: moog, percussion, strings, breakbeats makes it a joyful listen throughout.
Soundtrack has never been released before and has undergone a new multitrack remaster by Timmion Records Finland.
