Ville Vannemaa Cassiopeia
“Some player! Some chops! Touch of Trane, touch of Pharaoh, touch of Oliver Nelson’s searing emotion on sax. But a soloing style and a sense of structure all his own.” – DARYL RUNSWICK / BIRD CURTIS QUINTET
Ville Vannemaa Cassiopeia is an exciting quintet project led by reed player Ville Vannemaa, a key player in UMO Jazz Orchestra and known for his engagement in several other Finnish jazz constellations. With him on this date is vibraphonist Panu Savolainen, Kasperi Sarikoski on trombone, Heikko Remmel on bass and Jaska Lukkarinen on drums. Six sublime songs penned by Ville himself, plenty of detail and swinging from joy to melancholy in a melodic sense aimed for repeated listening. Future classic assured! Limited to 500 copies comes with CD inside.
