Composer-guitarist Ville Vokkolainen's Kadotettujen Paratiisi presents an intriguing combination of jazz and contemporary music on their first album. A strong emphasis is on free improvisation.
Composer Ville Vokkolainen’s group, Kadotettujen Paratiisi, challenges mainstream music boldly with their experimental style that could be described as a mixture of jazz and contemporary music. The collective is formed by the cream of new Finnish music, including Pauli Lyytinen (Raoul Björkenheim Ecstacy, Elifantree, Equally Stupid), Jorma Tapio (Sound & Fury), Eero Tikkanen (Mopo, Fredator, Auteur Jazz) and Ilmari Heikinheimo (Raoul Björkenheim, Sound & Fury).
Friends of alternative music find in this album a magnificent, pensive art music experience in which Voikkolainen’s soundscapes shape and reshape themselves into mystical sonic paintings.
