by Jori Huhtala



Here you can listen to samples of the group JORI HUHTALA 5. (Check out the album Misc. Music for other projects!)

The group is a vision of the bassist-composer. He has gathered his favorite musicians to interpret his compositions that move back and forth on jazz music's broad field, taking influences from pop music and film scores, among other styles. The music is both swinging and free-pulsative, beautiful and harsh, modern and old fashioned.

Joakim Berghäll - alto & tenor saxophones
Mikko Innanen - baritone & alto saxophones
Aki Rissanen - piano
Jori Huhtala - double bass
Ville Pynssi - drums
