December 8th, track 8: Kauhukakara – Casino-Seal

With the relase of their second album the quartet Kauhukakara returned to the Scandinavian jazz scene with the brilliant theme album based of the musical profiles of animals. The gazelle, the cow, the beaver and so on. All animals here are treated with expert care and humorous wit.
