Finland is a country that has learned to be efficient given its climate; it doesn’t waste anything. In music too it appears. The renowned Finnish composer Jean Sibelius said “Don’t write any unnecessary musical notes! … We couldn’t afford to lose or waste anything.” That seems to apply to the jazz scene in Finland. There the musicians flirt with minimalism, simple yet edgy lines. Get it out there fast and often furious. This episode has several new recordings from that
country, which is in the midst of a true jazz boom. The main centres of action are Helsinki, Tampere and Turko but the whole country is hearing jazz sounds of all kinds.

We Jazz, a busy label and presenter, sent along some new albums to sample, and you’ll also hear Hot Heros, a trio that will remind you of Black Motor. They’ve just released their second album for Eclipse Music.

As per usual there are several tracks from musicians from other countries: Samuel Ber from Belgium is back with Tony Malaby in tow; The Pen Club from Australia debuts its new “Data Retrieval”; a Portugal/Italian group, Tetterapadequ, dazzles; and some great new tunes from American bands led by Eric Hofbauer, Daniel Carter & Federico Ughi, & Jamie Saft’s new quartet will definitely catch your attention.
