Jari Perkiömäki Quartet from 1985





NOTA BENE:

This appeared earlier, following the Jarmo Savolanien, with an erroneous side 1 -- sorry for this, below will be the correct album.  Please change your download accordingly!!


The second and very similar (to the previous) Finnish fusion album with a distinct ECM (and Van't Hof) style.  Listen to the gorgeous uplifting tenor sax of the ultra-melodious & lush A2 Ballad:





--where the modulation halfway through is augmented by the cumulonimbus synthesizer strings to provide an aerodynamic take-off feeling...

Sadly this appears to be the only release from this line-up.  (A solo CD was made in 1997.)  The bio for Jari does note the following:

Finnish jazz saxophonist, composer and instructor (1987-1997), lecturer (1997-2000), the head of the Department of Jazz (2000-2009) and vice rector (2009 onwards) at the Sibelius Academy. Born on April 13, 1961.

Again, the education is both deep and deeply evident here.


Many thanks to my Finnish Connection for helping us make this spring so beautiful.  His generosity never ceases to astonish me, particularly when I glance by chance at the price of some of the records that he is sharing for free with all of us.

  1. Dreamy, relaxed fusion to get lost in. Reminds me of John Surman. Superb! Thanks

    And thanks for bringing my attention to the Solis Lacus pianist, Michel Herr, because I then discovered this STUNNING GEM from 1978, called Good Buddies:

    1. no, I don't have it, but I'll look for it. It may of course turn out to be one of those that can't be shared, sadly, due to cost
