His latest album Amorandom (Edition Records, 2016) with Aki Rissanen Trio was a critically acclaimed breakthrough that gained extensive recognition on the international jazz scene. Amorandom also won the Emma Award (Finnish Grammy) for Best Jazz Album of the Year 2016. In addition to his high merits in the Solo Piano Competition at the Montreux Jazz Festival and La Defense competition in France, Rissanen is also known for his works with saxophonist Dave Liebman on German Ozella Music and trumpeter Verneri Pohjola on British Edition Records and on ACT Music in Germany.
