Moving Music records present the previous unreleased soundtrack to the Norwegian cult movie, Heaven and Hell. A soundtrack written and composed by Norwegian maestro Egil Monn-Iversen. It features some of the key Norwegian jazz musicians; Terje Rypdal, Jan Garbarek and the late Svein Christiansen. Jan Erik Kongshaug mixed the session.

It was originally recorded summer 1969 and planned for a full release, but it never happened, until now! One of the most exciting Norwegian releases this year.

Egil Monn-Iversen nearly perfect score borrows elements from John Barrry and Lalo Schifrin soundtrack music, the opening theme song, sung by Inger Lise Rypdal sounds like it could be a Norwegian Bond movie theme! Key players are hired in from the late 60’s Norwegian jazz-scene and you can hear early talents like Jan Garbarek and Terje Rypdal in full bloom! The result is a vivid soundtrack that could rank up with any good 60s 70s European groovy soundtrack score!
