TUOHI KLANG "PENNSELMANN HITS VOL.2765" (UFO, 1972)



After removing at least 500 clicks I'm finally able to present this wonderful music.

In my IMHO this is one of Vesala's best recordings - excellent and intense drumming!
Strong baritone from  Paakkunainen....Koskinen's trumpet!
Wonderful and joyful bass work from Hauta-aho...Pekka Pöyry's reeds are...Mircea Stan and his trombone...high wailing harmonies - snake-lines...clear articulation - no cliches....space even when playing heavy....enough praising...
A real gem - hope it will be re-issued soon - would be happy to delete the links and buy me a remastered CD....

Meanwhile - Enjoy.




Heikki 'Mike' Koskinen, trumpet
Mircea Stan, trombone
Pekka Pöyry, alto and soprano saxophone, flute

Thanks a lot Onx. Your copy of this is in much better condition than mine!

The sleeve in fact identifies the bassist as Teemu Hauta-Aho, not the better known Teppo Hauta-Aho. Or is this perhaps the same person???

Thanks for doing all that work. Wonderful LP, and I could not agree more about the drumming!

Thanks -- a fun record!

I suspect that Teemu and Teppo are the same person; I've seen a reference to Teemu Hauta-Aho in Duo Neuva Finlandia, and Teppo is in Trio Nueva Finlandia.

Found a nice short video with the Tuohi-kvartetti playing a tune in Montreux (1971)...

Yes, Teemu Hauta-Aho is an alias of Teppo Hauta-Aho. He's also gone by "Teemu Kalmisto" at times.

There was also another incarnation of this band called Kalmiston Klangi between the Tuohi-kvartetti of 1971 in Montreux and Penselmann Hits that recorded four tracks for the Finnish National Broadcasting corporation that I believe have been unreleased until just this week when one track Anna Manna was included in a 3 CD anthology of Finnish Jazz "Eteenpäin! Suomi-Jazz 1960-1975" on the Artie Music label.

Thanks JP for the info - the anthology does also include Tuohi-kvartetti playing 'Seagull'.

Actually Anna manna is by Tuohiklang. Kalmiston Klangi was same band (same line-up). Hauta-aho means litterly "tomb glade" and nickname Kalmisto is old word for graveyard. Teppo is nickname from Teemu. Kalmiston Klangi / Tuohiklang made two appearances for YLE, finnish broadcast company, and Anna Manna is from later, which was already by name Tuohiklang. I recommend also LP by Nunnu Big Band (composed by Paakkunainen), where whole line-ups of Tuohiklang and Kvartet appeares with other musicians. These LPs should be able at Spotify now.
