Turku Jazz Orchestra 's first album in collaboration with Turku philharmonic orchestra, Johanna Iivanainen and Jukka Perko.
Sulle salaisuuden kertoa mä voisin anthology, which premiered in spring 2015, presented more or less familiar gems of film music that have been arranged to a big band and symphony orchestra with a fresh touch by Vellu Halkosalmia and his team.
On this album the film pieces can grow to the length they would have been performed, had there been enough musicians to play. Vellu Halkosalmi’s arrangements and Johanna Iivanainen’s wonderful voice give new glory to the old songs.
