The second album from the Sound & Fury ensemble to pass on the Edward Vesala's message.
Composer-percussionist Edward Vesala's Sound and Fury was one of the most praised jazz units in Europe during 1986 to 1999. Ten years after Vesala’s death the original wind instrument section decided to gather for a ten-year memorial concert. The album Pulsacion, which features Iro Haarla’s arrangements of Vesala’s compositions, was born in 2013. For the first time the new Thundering of Dawn album consist of compositions by Haarla and Jorma Tapio besides the pieces composed by Vesala. New members of the group are trumpeter Antero Priha and percussionist Simo Laihonen.
Vesala’s heritage lives on in many Finnish and international ensembles and this album takes the message warmly forward.
