My new CD called Synkkä Metsä ( Dark Forest ) will be out this August. It’s jazz instrumental versions of Finnish Folk songs. Featured on the disc are; Alejandro Urzagaste – guitar, Clark Sommers – bass, and Mike Schlick – drums. I’m playing tenor sax.
I really enjoyed playing in Estonia at the beginning of July. They have a real sweet little jazz fest on Muhumaa island. Very beautiful place. I played a few tunes with a wonderful band from Hamburg , Germany called Gabriel Coburger and Quintet Jean Paul. Also got to play with some great players from Sweden , Hakan Lewin ( alto sax ) , Aldo Meristo ( Estonia – piano ) , Wade Mikkola ( Finland – bass ) and Thomas Tornroos ( Finland – drums )
