MUSIC REVIEW BY George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Tenor saxist Juli Wood leads a quartet with Alejandro Urzagaste/g, Clark Sommers/b and Mike Schlick/dr to explore meldoes and themes from Finland. Traditional melodies from Scandinavia include a rich and lyrical "Lapin Aidin Kehto Laulu" and "Taivas on Sininen ja Volkoinen", both displaying deft lyricism by Wood's misty tenor and Urzagaste's textured guitar. A pair of pieces by Finnish artist Matti Jurva completes the circuit with a thoughtful "Touhinen Sormus" and sublimely pulsating "Valiaikainen." You don't need subtitles to enjoy this material.
