In this rocker based largely on the "Charleston" dance rhythm, Jan Johansson gets around the piano with agility and spark. With Swedish jazz listeners already familiar with Johansson's talents from his debut album of 1959 (Mäster Johansgatan 12), the strong playing heard on "Prisma" helped earn him further praise, and a third Golden Disc award from Orkester Journalen.
