Check out these cool jazz tracks inspired by great cars of the ’70s

Filed under: , , , , , ,



There's nothing like taking a drive with the perfect song playing that matches the mood and moment. When the rhythms sync up with the undulating road, the whole experience gets just a little bit better. Danish jazz-fusion band Elektrojazz understands the connection between music and driving, and it has a new album called Cars with each track inspired by a specific vehicle of the 1970s. The era might be known for some real clunkers, but you don't have to look too hard to find classics from the groovy decade, as well.

Instead of picking the cars themselves, the members of Elektrojazz put up a poll on the band's website allowing people to vote for their favorites. The most popular vehicle in each category made it onto the album. The final list definitely skews towards European sports cars of the era, with choices like the Lotus Esprit and Lamborghini Countach, but there are some definite outliers like the AMC Pacer and Saab 99 Turbo.

"Some of my favorites didn't make it," said Elektrojazz member Anders Larson to Autoblog via email. He would have liked the Porsche 928 and Jaguar XJS to make the cut, among several others. Although, he hinted that another car-inspired album could be on the way.

Each ride gets its own style of jazz to go along with it, too. The song about the 1970 Dodge Challenger sounds like you could drop it into Bullitt and no one would notice. However, the one about the Pacer uses some Latin-tinged blues. Scroll down to watch a video that previews all of the groovy tracks on the album. It's available for sale on the band's website and on iTunes.

Petrolicious keeps our love of the Saab Sonett aflame

Filed under: , , , ,

Saab Sonett

German auto designs lean toward function and purpose. Italian designers deliver passion and beauty. The Brits, majesty. American cars, brashness and authority. If you want a funky design, though, you go to Sweden. The land of cheap, do-it-yourself furniture and delicious meatballs knows a thing or six about style and design, and while that character is only now reemerging thanks to a certain string of Volvo concepts, it use to be that Saab was the authority on penning some of the industry's more unique designs.

Take the beautiful Sonett for example - a small coupe whose appearance is a funky mishmash of a Porsche 911 and a Bugeyed Sprite with just a hint of a Citroën DS (it's that convex rear window). It's a positively striking car, made more unique by its two-stroke, three-cylinder powertrain and four-on-the-tree manual transmission. With just 70 horsepower hauling about 1,500 pounds of Swedish style, the Sonett strikes us as an ideal alternative to some of the English sports cars of its day, particularly for those that are looking for something beyond your average MG or Triumph.

For Glenn Roberts, the Sonett was a part of his childhood. His family owned example was originally a special-order item by his parents in 1967. He bought the car from them 13 years later and has never looked back, completing a restoration in 2004. With a story like that, it's not surprising that Roberts and his silver Sonett are the most recent pairing to get some attention from Petrolicious.

We have the full video available below. Scroll down and have a look.
