Biography

THIS ALBUM IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF BOB BERG AND ELY CALLAWAY

 

"At a time when jazz lurches back to embrace more populist leanings, Klaus Suonsaari is headed in the other direction. Along with my man Scott Robinson, Klaus is advancing a concept I find very enjoyable to listen to. This band lives up to the ideal of jazz as a thinking man's music. Bravo".

- Branford Marsalis, Saxophonist, Marsalis Music Recording Artist

 

"Klaus Suonsaari has put together a collection of compositions and improvisations that has the beautiful openness and creative spirit that is the essence of jazz music. The quartet's free-flowing explorations are a wondrous "Portrait In Sound" indeed. I loved it"!

- Joe Lovano, Saxophonist, Blue Note Recording Artist

 

"These guys really sound great. I have known them for over twenty years and they are still going at it. Strong, powerful, subtle - everything you need to have a great group sound. Go for it"!

- George Garzone, Saxophonist, NYC Recording Artist
