RIP Bo Hansson

Legendary Swedish composer Bo Hansson passed away on Monday. He's best known for his instrumental albums released in the 1970s.

If you see a copy of Music Inspired By the Lord of the Rings, Magician's Hat or Attic Thoughts in your used vinyl store, pick it up in memory of this very talented and underrated musician.

"Organist and composer Bo Hansson has died. Hansson worked with Janne 'Loffe' Carlsson in the duo Hansson & Carlsson in the late 1960s. The music can be defined as instrumental jazz-rock and psychedelia and the band setting was limited to the drums and organ, without vocals."
