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
