about

Here you can listen to the album JORI HUHTALA 5 released on Fredriksson Music in 2015.
(Check out the album "Music from other projects" as well!)

The group on this record 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.

Jori Huhtala 5 is:
Joakim Berghäll - alto & tenor saxophones
Mikko Innanen - baritone & alto saxophones
Aki Rissanen - piano
Jori Huhtala - double bass
Ville Pynssi - drums
