New Exciting Release from Pianist/Composer Aki Rissanen
KSJAZZ is proud to announce a new exciting release from Finnish pianist/composer Aki Rissanen entitled "Beautiful Anxiety". The CD features tenor saxophonist Rick Margitza, trumpeter Magnus Broo, bassist Antti Lötjönen and drummers Ville Pynssi and Olavi Louhivuori.

This is how Aki Rissanen describes the new release:

"The material on the album falls into a category modern mainstream. There are echoes from northern lyricism as well as from more rhythmic American jazz tradition. In addition one can surely hear glimpses of my fascination in classical repertoire. I wanted to have two very different soloists on the album in order to show different aspects of my compositional style. The CD features a lyrical, rounded tone of Mr. Margitza on tenor sax and a freer melodic approach of Mr. Broo on trumpet, who both have very distinctive and personal voices in jazz. Also I have an excellent trio doing the ground work featuring Antti Lötjönen on bass and Ville Pynssi on drums. On some tunes I wanted to use the sound of Olavi Louhivuori on drums to extend the sonic palette. I'm very proud of this album"!
