info 

The Sibelius Academy, in the capital Helsinki, which takes its music quite seriously, producing world-class players. Within those hallowed walls is the jazz department (nice) where one of the alumni is Janne “Jean Erik” Tuovinen, who is considered to be one of this Scandinavian country’s top double bass players, and it is he who has released his (and his band’s) debut album. Piano, sax, and drums are augmented by occasional low-level synths to provide an interesting slant on the traditional four-piece and makes for a very pleasing listen. Having studied as a pupil of Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, Janne “Jean Erik” Tuovinen’s debut album is contemporary jazz at its very best, fused with modern sonic soundscapes. As the recepient of the Ted Curson memorial award in 2017 sax virtuoso Pauli Lyytinen gives the album some major soloing highlights.
