Biography

Aurora Hentunen Quartet released its sophomore album Frost in August 2019.

Aurora Hentunen Quartet, which debut Second Spring was released in 2018, released their new album Frost on 20 August 2019. The quartet, known for the modern jazz sound rising from the core of the Finnish nature and accompanied by folkish melodies and electric effects, celebrated the new album with a album release tour, performing seven cities around Finland.

The ensemble has been well-welcomed both Finland and abroad, and after Finland the Frost tour is heading to the Netherlands, German, France and Belgium. AHQ’s members have studied music in Finland, the Netherlands and United States, and are often praised for their seamless ensemble play and high-level professional attitude. The new album features alto saxophonist Max Zenger, tenor saxophonist Ukko Heinonen and guitarist Luka Batista.
