Antiphone Blues is a title that requires no introduction. As a largely popular bestseller since its first edition in 1975, this Proprius recording deserved to join the collections of music lovers and audiophiles all over the world, for its extraordinary sound quality and its innovative musical content.

"Another legendary and classic Proprius recording, Antiphone Blues combines the unlikely pairing of saxophone with pipe organ, and the results are quite surprisingly—thrilling, to say the least! Arne Domnerus' sax has a remarkably realistic presence that must be experienced to be believed, and never seems overwhelmed by Gustaf Sjokvist's masterful playing of Sweden's Spanga Church organ. The track selection here is quite eclectic, ranging from Arne Domnerus' own improvisations to traditional Swedish hymns and African-American spirituals. Several Duke Ellington tunes, as well as paraphrases of classical pieces by Schumann and Vivaldi, are added for good measure. There's a sublimely spiritual overtone to the proceedings, which is in perfect keeping with the extremely spiritual (and spirited) performances." - Positive Feedback

Yes, an exceptional analogue album on reel-to-reel tape, one of the best and most natural recordings ever made, sample video - youtube.com/watch?v=7tEjulVGuog

One of the top-ten audiophile recordings of all time. Recorded by the Swedish audiophile label Proprius, this unlikely pairing of saxophones and organs will give you goosebumps. The acoustics of the Spanga Church are captured flawlessly, and the playing of these spirituals owes more to inventive introspection than to strict religious dogma. Don’t let the odd instrumentation deter you from hearing this exceptional recording on analogue tape!
