Only recently I discovered Finnish trumpet player Verneri Pohjola, who just released his record “Bullhorn”. Great music and an amazing sound. Definitely worth checking out!
Music from the nordic countries has always made a big impression on me. When I started listening to jazz Nils Petter Molvaer was one of my first trumpet heroes. It was only later that I went back in history and started also listening to the cutting-edge jazz trumpet players from the past. I had the chance to meet Nils Petter a few times and hear him live. I still love his sense for beautiful melodies and it’s always a pleasure to listen to his new music. His latest record is called “Switch”.
