Regarding the album Social Sketches, recorded for Enja in the 70's, .... it was made one of several wonderful tours to Finland. The musicians, and what they play are:
Carita Holmström, voice
Seppo Paakkunainen, reeds and flute
Teppo Auta-Aho, contrabass
Reino Laine, drums
These musicians were wonderful. As I remember they were all graduates of the Sibelius Conservatory in Helsinki, (Seppo also studied at Berkley in Boston but their influences from, and knowledge of where the music was from was astounding. They had the elegance and diversity of the American roots, and the fire of the gypsies, well supported by finesse and chops of the classical world.
The record is worth a listen....me too!! The very best, Marc Levin, www.marclevin.net
